Art Website Launch

Well I finally got around to making a webpage. The art bug has been buzzing in my ear again, and I've hooked up a few initial tests or sketches if you like which can be seen in the portfolio. Hoping to do more soon as well as some large scale and installation pieces.

Keep an eye out for updates here and on the page itself.

Mandala's on the Mind

Well, I usually have an allergic reaction to New Year's resolutions, so I'm not going to go there... BUT I have decided recently to aim the absent, sort of scattered crochet therapy that I've been known to indulge in between books into a more focused and intent filled practice.

Primarily because I need it, and because I came upon this fantastic book about crochet and healing that got my meditative engines all fired up.

So I've made a series of chakra mandalas, and that was fantastic, but didn't really assuage the mindfulness cravings. Then, a friend of mine put me onto this granny square a day vlog, and that looked cool but wasn't exactly right. Finally, I got around to putting the two ideas together and came up with the Mandala a Day idea for 2016.

Which we all know I won't manage to pull off.
But I'm still going to try it.
We can take bets on how long I make it before folding like a wet paper bag.

In the meantime here are my first four days of January 2016...

and a link to one of the best books on crochet I've seen:

And my chakra pattern is available in my Rav store.
