Mini rings of change CAL

The lovely Kate from Stitches, Scraps and Sparkles in the Sun is hosting a CAL to make this .......

I think it's amazing you could use this pattern for so many things it could be a large mandala, doily, blanket or rug. The CAL started yesterday and it's going to run until March, you can find out all about it here

I want to make a rug using these shades..

these are my favourite colours, although because of the poor lighting the true colours aren't coming through properly.  

The rug is to put next to my bed to match my violet meadow blanket and then I may try to make a smaller version using finer yarn to make a matching mandala to hang on the wall.

I hope that you all have had a lovely Christmas day and are now enjoying some peace and quiet after all the preparations.

Mine is on going I have had family visiting and it's set to continue for a while at least, I am enjoying Emilys company she is very sweet, here is a picture of her and my son after they finished making the gingerbread house.

Tonight the whole family is going out for a meal at a very lovely hotel and there will be disco dancing so I'm off to find my dancing shoes :)

Enjoy your weekend!
