I only know because Eleonora of Coastal Crochet has written a wonderful blog post about it.
So, although I have not made a new piece especially, I thought I would join in with my mandala that I made in July 2019 especially to hang up outside.
It was hanging on my garage wall opposite my front door last year, but this year I put it on one of the posts that supports my espalier pears as a sort of rainbow homage to all our carers during this time of Covid19. It now faces the road.
One of my (possibly short-sighted) neighbours asked me why I had hung a dartboard on my fence!
It went up in April
and sits beside the bug hotel
which is decaying nicely.
The bug hotel (there since 2013) is usually hidden from view, but I cut back the shrubs surrounding it in the hope that the forsythia and golden privet will bulk up as they regrow. You can see it from the other side in this post.
The mandala pattern is called Tuuli, by Zoya Matyushenko, made with Stylecraft Special DK and a 4.5mm hook and attached to a 70cm metal ring.
