I stitched this mandala over 3 months. Not because it took a long time but because I really thought about which effect I wanted. At first, (crazy me !) I wanted to only do French knots, then reality took over. And I thought about other stitches. The grid and the ribbon were nice and easy to do, but then I let it to rest. I didnt know how to finish it.

A big clean in my workshop gave me the key : 2 soft thread, and the way to tie them to the material give them soft waves.

Now Im pleased with it.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Lovely. Exactly like a starfish. I love the way you did the green outer edge.

Thanks. I didn't think about the textures when I did it... but it's true that it's the feature which is striking now.

I'm working on a new one, with different shades. I'll try to keep that in mind Smiley
