Having finished a shawl for my mother’s long lost cousin, I wondered what on earth I would work on now that it was done.
I needed to go no more than a foot from where I had laid the shawl out to dry, and I found my abandoned boho heart mandala:
It needed some means of support to allow it to be hung on a wall, and nearby was a hoop that was the perfect size to be used as part of the support system that will hold the mandala together:
The hoop was the perfect size, but not the perfect color. So with my 4.5 mm hook in hand and trusty Red Heart Super Saver cherry, I got to work covering the hoop with the predominant color of the mandala:
It was a little awkward and slow going at first, but eventually I got the hang of it, and before I knew it, I was done:
There is still a fair amount of detail work to be done before this mandala is finished and ready to be hung on a wall, and I also need to find a hoop (or hoops) of suitable size to help stabilize the center, but I am moving forward, and soon another UFO (Unfinished Object) will be transformed — one stitch at a time.
