I've made a few mandala's from Marinke's pattern above that I found in Issue 5 of Simply crochet. They are so effective and make good little gifts I think, although having a couple around the house at the moment I'm not entirely sure whether to leave them on tables and trays or pin a couple to the walls.... Am I the sort of person who puts crochet on the walls? It all looks lovely in a Mollie Makes house but I'm not sure about mine. There again, I've found it pretty impossible to commit to anything on the walls in the last 2 places I've lived in so I am no expert.
However over the next couple of months I am determined to hang photos and pictures and prints around our house. I'm sick of old frames with old pictures of Ruby as a baby stacked up in piles around the house and the few prints that we have leaning against various walls. They need to go up! I think I'm going to need a huge amount of inspiration from pinterest and interiors books as I've never really bothered before and I don't want to make any mistakes in these newly plastered walls (every single one in this house!)
Enough of the wall plans - after making Marinke's mandala pattern I was inspired to make up my own pattern:
It was alot of fun, making something up!
What do you think? I love the colours. What do you think?
