A spell has been cast

For some time now I've been drooling over the beautiful Mandala Gardens some of you are making. Last week I discovered that Martina Weber offers a number of freebies http://chatelaine-design.de/newweb/ and I figured this was my chance to try my hand at it.



The 'Tiny Rose Mandala Garden' has cast a spell on me. Even when I'm not working on it I have it close by so I can take a peek now and then. Do you see the fountain in the centre? The symmetry of the entire piece is so lovely and it's so much fun to do. I LOVE IT!!! It's being stitched on 28 ct evenweave that I've had lying around for ages. The finished pattern will measure 4 3/8" x 4 3/8" and up till now every stitch has been an absolute joy.

It's beautiful! I've wanted to start one of these for some time, but something else always came up ... seeing yours, I will do a better job of making time to start one of my own!

Your Tiny Rose Mandala looks great Margaret. I have been resisting the urge to buy several of the Mandala Gardens for sometime now but may well have to start one of the freebies after seeing yours.
