LED BY THE NOSE WITHOUT REALISING IT.


I am getting myself into gear by doing some crochet, just a small project to start me off again.

It's a Mandala.  There's more to Mandala's than just a bit of crochet they actually have meaning.
Without getting all spiritual I read this about them.

It is this process of creating round, symmetrical images that is beneficial from a healing perspective. This spiritual circle will help promote mindfulness, focus attention and promote healing. Carl Jung described a mandala as “a representation of the unconscious self”.

Isn't that strange how I have sort of been pushed to make one of these without realising what they are about as this is exactly what I need at the moment?


I can see just a bit of leg in the top left hand corner, bit too close to those scissors I think, must move them. lol

    2. Eventually, Tom will probably spot her on "Match of the Day", waving her shirt in the air after scoring for The Seagulls. Fortunately perhaps, Briony failed to score against Chelsea.

  2. I think (unconsciously) you were Seeking and just by chance you found :)
    Enjoy your peaceful time Briony - and yes I do see a little white paw.

    Take care

  4. Yes I woul say that you were being guided to make that mandala and then to search for the meaning of it so that you knew it was meant to be.

  5. That's good news. I like mandalas, the way you can start small and keep adding to it.

  6. Glad you've made a start back to crafting! I find crocheting very therapeutic. I like doing blankets, just got a new one on the go. Enjoy your weekend!

  13. Funny you are talking about this...being round...I have had it in mind to do a quilt where I applique circles....I really ought to start that. There was a woman that did one a day for 365 days and decorated each one different, or sewed it a different way.

  14. BTW, I should have first said I LOVE the colors.

  15. I just had to stop by and tell you how I had to laugh at your comment at Ginny's fabric pumpkin....the stem in the ear! Funny.

    I used to crochet a lot. Haven't in years. This project sounds interesting. AND pretty colors!

  16. I'm glad you found something to spark your creativity again. Funny how things come into our lives at certain times, isn't it?

  17. I am not surprised your body is taking a break after all the intricate work you did on your needlepoint book. I am the same I do lots of crochet/knitting and then need to take a break the same with reading. I always come back to it eventually.

  18. Your mandala is looking lovely. I think crafting in general can be very therapeutic.

  19. Excellent! It's always great to start a new project. A mandala is a representation of the "wheel of life," I believe, at least in Buddhism.

  20. Glad you have 'taken up the hook' again. Sometimes we are led by unseen forces.

  21. Yes, I was so glad to finish a mammouth crochet project this summer.... But then have had withdrawal symptoms as autumn approaches and just had to get a fix - buying a new load of wool to make something equally demanding for my daughter. Seems strange just sitting there when watching a film etc without doing something. Not good at multitasking but anything woolly is different! Crocheting with cats is always an interesting experience....

  22. Popped in from a mutual friends blog, it's always nice to find new blog friends. The Mandala is very pretty, love the colors you've chosen. They seem bright happy colors to me. As this is my first visit to your blog, I'm not up to speed with whatever you've just been through; but am glad you found your way to the making of the Mandala and hope it helps you along your path.
