* Mandala for Monika

Hoy se cumple un año desde que Mònika se marchó a su nueva morada. Con los colores del cielo y las nubes he hecho este tapete para ese mural que se completará el domingo con pedacitos de muchos otros cielos y trocitos de naranja. Podía haber hecho un tapete más al uso con perlé pero finalmente me decanté por un mandala de colores fuertes. Es optimista, espiritual y cargado de esperanza. Además, la fiesta de Mònika coincidirá con la celebración del Holi así que, ¿hay algo más adecuado? Hecho con lanitas de mi Tejuca, a partir de ahora cuando me abrigue con la manta me acordaré siempre de ella.

Espero que le guste, de vieja'l visillo a vieja'l visillo. ♥

Lana: Katia Fama en azul, celeste y crudo, 100% acrílico.

Mandala for Monika
She's been dancing with clouds

Today is Monika's departure to her new home 1st anniversary. Made with the colours of the sky and the clouds, this is my contribution for that mural that will be completed on Sunday with little pieces of another skies and bites of oranges. I could have made a more typical doily using perle cotton but I preferred a sturdy mandala with bold colours. I think it is positive, spiritual and loaded with hope. Also, Monika's party will take part on the same day as the Holi festival so could there be something more appropiate? Made with the yarn I used for my Tejuca I will always think of her when I cuddle under my blanket from now on.

I hope she likes it --from crochetaholic to crochetaholic. ♥

  2. Very beautiful! I know she will like this. I took a peek at her blog and she seems like a wonderful person who is very positive inspite of all she has endured. She has made many beautiful pieces. I can only imagine how beautiful your piece will be with all the rest. :-)

      I'm glad to know you're finally having good weather. We are still waiting for the rain here --amazing how it is raining just 50 miles from here but we can't even get a drop. Enjoy the weekend!
