Crochet Mandala No. 1

Ever heard of a Mandala?  It's a spiritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism that represents the Universe (there is more to it -- let Wikipedia tell you about it).  Over the years though, it has become popular in the art world.  Search for Mandala and you will find drawings, paintings, tapestries, mosaics, and, of course, crocheted mandalas.

I have been working on more fiber art to hang in my home -- dreamcatchers, wall hangings, weavings, and now Mandalas.  This is the first one I completed a few weeks ago.  I love the colors.

I'm trying to decide the best way to hang it on my wall and figure out which wall.  I am planning on converting my (now) office/messy craft space to a full on office/art studio -- at least as much of a studio as I can create.  I think I will hang my first mandala in there for inspiration.

Until today, it had been a month since my last blog post.  I am working on some ideas and planning to post more often.  Converting my office to a dual space is part of the plan so I can make a concerted effort each day to create, write, and, hopefully, grow my blog readership.  I have been hanging on to these mandala photos for a bit and thought it would be a good way to jump back in again.  Life moves so quickly and the future is constantly becoming our present.  If we don't make efforts towards our dreams now, we might not have the chance later.

Hope you are enjoying your week!
