Granny Mandala...

It seems like foooorrrrrrevvvvveeeeerrrrrr since I started Mumzy's birthday blanket and although I love doing it I have been itching for something quick and cheerful to make. Something that won't take an age to finish. Do you get that when you're working on a big project? So after I stumbled across Crochet With Raymond and fell in love with her Granny Mandala's I just had to have a try.......





Okay so it isn't finished yet but I just had to share with you! This is a VERY easy pattern to follow. Before attempting this I had been fiddling around with another pattern (which I shall not name!) that was just sooooo hard to follow for my small amateur brain. I ended up chucking it all in the basket in a big frustrated huff. But not this one! I'm not sure what I am going to do with this Granny Mandala yet but I do plan on making a Christmas version.....(did she just say Christmas?!) ....Yes I did. Now I don't attempt Christmas until the end of November. I am one of these people who normally moan at the fact Tesco's is full of Christmas stuff before Halloween. But this year I am kind of looking forward to it....I'm not sure if it's the new house I get to decorate or I'm simply less stressed this year. But bring on Christmas. Yeah!

I love the granny mandalas - something different. The colors you have chosen for yours are very pretty together. :)

Love it! I gasped when I saw those pretty pretty colours together!!! Do you know what? I made heaaaaaaps of them, heaps I teel you and they were sitting on the back on my table chair for ages, but I did a big tidy up of my house and now they all have homes and my bland rented property looks like a creative haven too!!!!! In fact, I need a couple more.......
Can't wait to see it finished!
