Tast 2012 week 34, linked double chain !

Hello everyone, I apologise for being late this week, but I took a few days break and went to Brighton to see my son ! Had a great time with lovely weather....So now I am back home feeling refreshed and full of
life !! Linked double chain is the stitch this week.....oh boy, I have to say that this is one stitch that I did not
like very much !!! I found it a bit of a chore and struggled to create something saying that,
I think what I achieved was reasonable considering !!! I watercoloured my background fabric, used beads and pearls.......most of the threads are hand dyed from my local sewing store....she hand dyes them herself
and they are lovely.....Hope you like my mandala this week and please enjoy the rest of your week end...

Thank you to all who visit my creative corner....I appreciate your time !!!!!!        xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
