TAST 2012 DETACHED CHAIN WEEK 7

Hello all, the weeks are flying by, no sooner have I finished one mandala...then I'm finishing the next one and so on ! This mandala was very fun to do, I so love this stitch which is AKA LAZY DAISY.......so versatile !
I stay so focused doing this TAST  challenge....what am I going to do when its finished.....sigh......One thing i would like to mention is the fact that the anchored stitches in the centrepiece are a different colour ? How did I do it..........You'll have to ask me in a comment !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 Not quite so many beads used on this one as I did not want to detract from the beauty of the stitches, I really wanted to showcase the stitch !! I truely am very grateful for any comments left on my work and would like to thank Romilly from http://stitchingwithashimmy.com/ for featuring me on her ' Mondays Treasures spot' !!!




 I do hope you like my latest mandala......Have a very happy, creative and peaceful week end xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    1. Hi Arlene,In answer to your question.......I sew the little anchor stitches first, in one colour, then in another colour I
      catch the anchor stich to make the loop !

  5. Another stunning Mandala! I agree with others, the colours and the intriguing change of thread in the centre lifts this beauty even further.

  17. Absolutely breathtaking! Because that's what I did when I saw this beautiful piece of art:-) You're making me want to do this now. I tried a mandala in crochet and it must have been too bulky a yarn. Didn't do so well with it. I've been working on felt dolls and got back into embroidery after a longggg hiatus, the 70's, when I was doing mushrooms (embroidered ones that is!). hehe:-)
