A Place to Enjoy

My First Crochet Mandala

Last year we enjoyed an evening at the Bournville (where they make chocolate) light turning on festival. One of the things that caught my eye were these lovely crochet mandala which were hung in the trees.

Ever since I saw them I wanted to make my own mandala, but it was a long time coming. Last week I finished my first ever mandala which I decided to hang in a hoop like the ones in this tree. I was really pleased with it, especially as it was my first attempt.

I have already shared the photo on my other blog so you may have seen it before. But I am pretty chuffed with my effort and I’m now in the process of making another with different colours. I have no idea what I’m going to do with them. Maybe I’ll make a Christmas coloured one to hang in my window.

My Next Crochet Projects

I shared a post recently about some Christmas projects I wanted to make. I’ve had a go at making a snowflake, but I went a little wrong…but hey, what snowflake is perfect?

  1. Ooh your crochet mandala looks great! And how beautiful the ones you saw at Bourneville look too! I like your snowflake as well, those would look great in a Christmas tree. I have no talent for crocheting myself… I did some as a kid, mostly making scarves for my dolls, lol, but really don’t have the patience for it anymore. Maybe some day in the future I might give it another go… x #MMBC

    1. I love my Crochet, it gives me something to look forward to each day and it’s so relaxing…you can often find me napping with a hook in my hand, lol
