Mandala Madness Part 6
Mandala Madness Part 6
Can you believe we are a third of the way through this madness!!
A few of you spotted that there was no comment or description from me about last week’s instalment. It is very much combined with this part, as we work back into an eight pointed star.
Octagrams formed from overlapping squares often emphasize duality: yin and yang, male and female, spiritual and material.
Squares are often connected with the physical world: four elements, four cardinal directions, etc.
Together, they bring balance.
They are used in many different faiths, and belief systems, all around the world and date back to pre-Ancient Egypt.
Number 8 tells you to step into your personal power and have faith and trust in your own abilities, skills and talents, and to use them to their highest potential.
So with that said, as you start this week, the very first round is one that will test your patience, and your concentration.
It is not hard, but there is a lot going on, so please take your time, and go step by step.
To me each piece of work I do, I want to learn, grow, and improve. This is done by taking time to focus on what I am doing, and to enjoy each and every step of the journey. It is not about getting from A to B in the fastest possible time!
Maybe this is the week to really take the time to “feel” what the colours you have chosen mean to you, and if you haven’t already, then find a name for your own personal Mandala Madness, to make it absolutely unique to you.
Also this week you will need to turn your work in round 44 and then turn back for round 45, this will make a huge difference to the way your work looks, but please be very aware of those SNEAKY…HIDDEN stitches.
And…because some of you have asked for some measurements for guidance at the end of this week mine measure as follows:
Merino Soft ~ Rainbow Madness ~ 4mm hook ~ 26 inches / 66 cm
Colour Crafter ~ Purple Passion ~ 4.5mm hook ~ 30 inches / 76 cm
Stonewashed xl ~ Big Earth Momma ~ 5.5mm hook ~ 37 inches / 94 cm
