In the last four weeks I made another mochila, an order from my colleague. It's my fifth mochila and I'm a bit full of it. So I guess this will be the last mochila you will see from my hand for quite a while.
Dear people who are still visiting this blog every now and then to check if something new is on: after more than a year of silence I want to pick up where I have left.
It's been a while, but it was a very busy year, that's why. We moved to another house in another town. I think I've told you that what my husband loves the most is home improvement jobs in our own house. In our old house weren't any jobs to do anymore and we needed more space anyway, so we bought a fixer upper in another town. We moved last summer and have been busy to make it a home every weekend since then. I just hadn't time, but also no motivation, inspiration and appetite to make/craft anything else, so I hadn't much to tell or show.

I started this large (as in a 1 meter diameter) mandala a couple of weeks ago. I finished it yesterday and although I really like the pattern in itself, I have doubts about the colors I used.
I like natural colors and brown is the most natural of all, I guess, but somehow I don't really like the outcome, at least not for my home I mean. I used Caramel Core Blimey by Scheepjes and my mouth watered by the sound of it. Maybe that's why I wanted to use that color so readily, because of the caramel.
The intention was to hang the mandala in the living room above the piano, as soon as the walls are plastered, but I think I'm going to sell it and make another mandala in another color. What do you think?
In the first picture shows better what the colors are, the second shows the pattern better.
After not even a year of sleeping in her new, renovated room, my daughter is ready to make some changes. From gold and grey she now opts for powdery pink and old pink. The grey on the walls can stay, luckily, but all gold colored accessories definitely have to go out. My task is to make new covers for her pillows and a throw.
