I’m on day 8 of this Mandala spiritual awareness journey. I have just completed Round 34. Phew, those popcorns were frustrating. I had to take this apart 3 times to get it to work. At the beginning of my third attempt, I paused the video and counted the popcorns in the picture. That is where I discovered the popcorns were in clusters of 13 not 12, then 2 half double crochets, 5 single crochets on each side. Once I did it that way everything came together. Thank goodness for the picture. 🙂
Since we last discussed colors I’ve added black, pink, bright spring green and royal blue. I chose black to invite mystery into my spiritual arena because things in my world were feeling very mundane. I was looking at my pink hyacinths in the front flower bed and the new green leaves on the trees so I added those to my Mandala. I noticed how dark my buds were on my other hyacinths so I decided to add royal blue. I decided to measure my progress at this point and on Round 34 it is 36 inches.
This is when I introduced the black, it really added a pop to the sunbursts.
This is where I added the pink, spring green and blue.
I’m looking forward to Part 5 with the interesting half moons and shell shapes. I’m thinking I am going to do the red again though I am not a huge fan of red just to keep the colors balanced in my Mandala.
Thank you for following me. I was so excited to see I’ve reached 101 followers. Godspeed!

Oh Lyn this is so beautiful! The colors are so deep and rich. I love your color choice inspirations. I am on the same round as you are. I’m excited to be bringing some warm reds and oranges to my next few rounds. I’ll be spending time with my mandala this weekend. I have seen several of this mandala pattern and am always so delighted by the way it’s all the same pattern but the colors make every one of them so unique.

Lyn (and Tami) – I am sooooo excited with this project. I love that you are letting yourself respond to colors like the hyacinths, and that you are modeling persistence with problem-solving the popcorns. So fun! Thank you for sharing this! 🙂
