Fortunately, I've been good since finishing Serengeti Mandala. There were a couple of smalls I wanted to stitch for some friends and I managed to finish one and nearly finish the other before I got my reading blinders on.
Family Tree by My Big Toe Designs
Fabric: 28ct Lugana 'Baby Lotion'
Fibers: From stash
Started: June. 6th, 2016
Finished: June 10th, 2016
The as-yet-unfinished small is Quilted with Love- Cherish by Stoney Creek. This is not my usual style but I find it absolutely adorable!!
I would also like to take the opportunity to answer some questions from 'no-reply bloggers':
How big is it actually ? I thought mandalas were small.
They come in all sizes. This is one of Martina's biggest. 25 7/8 x 25 7/8 on 32ct.
After Cherish is finished, I'll start prepping Yexian. More to come on that. Stay tuned. :D
How will you frame it?
Well, one of the first things I did was get a piece of custom cut acid-free foam board so I could mount it. I used my normal pin and board method, but instead of taping the fabric to the back of the board as I've always done, I had to lace Serengeti up since it's so big.
It's now at Michaels. Since my in-laws were visiting, we decided to make use of the custom frame sale and see what we could find. We should have it back this weekend. I'll post a picture of it then. :D
