“Daisy what is a Mand-a-long?” I can hear you say?
Read on…..you see I’m collaborating and I do so love a good collaboration!
I am sure you all know Chrissie from Chrissie Crafts if not, please go and say hello, she is an inspiration and she happens to be very, very nice.
Here is a fact you may not know about Chrissie,she can sing like a Disney Princess!
I think she looks like one too.
Chrissie even made-over her own basket from my ‘Reloved’ magazine feature.
Well as is the way in Blogland Chrissie and I have been ’email chatting’ back and forth, back and forth.
Chrissie has been teaching crochet classes and recently hooked ‘mandalas’ with her group.
An idea started to hatch….more emails back and forth, back and forth.
Chrissie contacted Wink from a creative being who as you crocheters will know is the one and only ‘Queen of the Mandalas’ to ask if we could use her patterns.
Lo and behold Wink liked the idea too!
Emails back and forth, back and forth……
I designed a button, Chrissie worked out the nitty-gritties and Wink has designed all the patterns you will ever need
(Mandalas get every where in our house, this one is on the garden table)
So do you wanna Play?
Grab the code from the button in mine or chrissie’s side bar and pop it on your side bar…..
Please do ask us for help if you have not done this before

It works up quickly…always a bonus.
I crocheted this one whilst watching two repeat episodes of GBSB again.

Even Peter wants to join in, he is ahead of his game and is thinking up imaginative ways of wearing his Mandala
