Sorry I wasn't very clear in my last post what exactly it was I had made for Little Z. Obviously the blue item with the pink heart was a pencil case. The other item, not so clear, was a book cover for her writing journal/drawing book.
Here it is!
Now back to the business of this post.
Alice, if you're reading this, you may want to avert your eyes.
Somehow I have managed to create the wonkiest Mandala known to
man/crochetkind. Not sure how, but I will say I frogged this sucker three times! Don't get me wrong, Alice's pattern could not be any easier. However the cosmic brain meld that allows me to read the words of her pattern without actually reading them must be broken or suffering from some sort of serious disruption. And for reasons unknown to me, even after I frogged it once, I still refused to actually stop and
R E A D
the words or look at the photos.
Sorry Alice, I deserve a good smack.
So how many pins does it take to block a wonky mandala and make it round??? Many more than I own.
What's that you say? Why don't I frog it and start again? Because I suffer from a severe lack of patience and an over abundance of stupidity.And I'm VERY hopeful the entire contents of my pin cushion and copious amounts of spray starch will do the trick....
Of course if you want to know how these lovely mandalas really should look, pop over and see Alice. Hers are quite simply brilliant.
P.S. I think the sludgy photos due to the lack of light only add to the crappiness. Even if it isn't round, the colours are really quite lovely, honest!
