For me, it became an opportunity to express myself in fiber, which morphed into somewhat of an addiction. Hard as I tried not to be a 'Mandala OverDoSue Maniac', I could not stop myself from going round and round with my favorite crochet hook 'J' and a mixture of yarns and other fibers. Would Jung have a field day with my psychological expression of self or what?
After several months of maniacal crocheting, cramped fingers, and aching shoulders, it ended with a collection/gallery of table centerpieces. I did rugs, too, but that's another letter.
What's your 'Modern Mania Mandala' of Self Expression?
I was thinking that you could just keep going and turn it into a rug - I bet you did didn't you? :) They're pretty and I especially like the bright colourful one at the beginning.ReplyDelete

I think I've run out of superlatives. I love your color combinations. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.comReplyDelete
This is very beautiful. Thank you for sharing :)ReplyDelete
As always your color combinations seal the deal. I keep imagining where I would use a Mandala.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! Makes me want to re-learn how to crochet!ReplyDelete
I love the black, gray and red one the best. I never thought of mandalas in crocheting but it works of course. Good use for scraps too I'll bet. Thanks for sharing this!ReplyDelete
Hi Sue - they are lovely .... and so many wonderful colours ... but great Mandalas - and what a fun hobby ... if you don't get too obsessive!! Cheers HilaryReplyDelete
I resently saw a mandala paint on rocks, by using a spirograph.ReplyDelete

Your crochet work is beautiful! I didn't realize this was a mandala pattern. The Mama crocheted pieces like these when I was a kid. She was a brilliant at that craft.ReplyDelete
These are beautiful!!ReplyDelete
