Finished Embroidered Mandala (IA challenge/ AEDM days 9-11)


Its been a difficult week BUT I'm proud to say that I created a little every day and therefore finished my embroidered mandala design. For a first attempt I am happy with this and feel I've learnt a lot through the trials and errors involved in completing it. I am entering this into days 9 - 11 of Art Everyday Month and also into this week's Inspiration Avenue needlework themed challenge hosted by the lovely Hettienne.

  • When did you last try something new in your creative work? How did you find the experience?

Thank you all for your recent lovely comments & messages. I'm sorry I'm not getting much chance to visit you all but I promise to visit as and when I'm able. Therefore bit by bit I shall get to you all and enjoy seeing your creations.

Happy Weekend to you all!
My weekend will all about celebrating my daughter's Birthday.

  16. Wow - what a way to express the theme - it's SO cool! Translating a mandala to stitches would be challenging and I love the mix of your colors and stitch types. Hooray for needlework!!

  17. The colors here are exquisite, and I am truly impressed by your incredible handiwork-- literally! I wish I could make a silly pun or joke about stitching, or being in stitches or laughing or some such, but I am just too smiley looking at how pretty this is. Great job!
