Mandala Madness- Complete!

Am I insane?!  I just made a 6ft+ Mandala!  This thing is HUGE!   I have learned many new stitches and techniques. All of them were so very fun.  Each round was something new and beautiful.

I started this crochet project back in August and here, in November,  I am finally putting the last stitch in it.  Yea!  Moments like these deserve a picture:)
I absolutely LOVE this afghan. The colors are bright and bold.  The Scheepjes yarn is so soft and snuggly.

Here are a few pictures:

I even had a little photo shoot with it to celebrate!But everyone knows that a beautiful, SWEET, young, red-head makes a much better model:)And absolutely nothing can beat a cute little 2 year old with his happy smile about being on a new blankey!

It has been an amazing journey.  I want to thank Helen at crystals and crochet for freely sharing this beautiful pattern with all of us.  You can find it here if you are interested in making one of your own.

Now it is time to place this masterpiece in a box with red and green wrapping for my daughter in law since she didn’t get s crocheted creation at her wedding.  I know she will cherish it:)

Thank you for stopping by and smiling with me as I share my creative adventures
