    This is so pretty. I have made two mandelas before and I never know what to do with them. What do you do with yours? I made one into a pillow. The other sits on a table like a doily. any other ideas? I think they are so pretty and fun to make.

      Thanks Cindy. I use mine mostly as doilies, but you could frame them or hang them in an embroidery hoop. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful pattern.
    I have 2 questions, the paintbox cotton that you have used here, where does it ship from and does it take log to arrive in Australia?
    Also, how do you go about weaving in the ends neatly? I’m just kind of crocheting them in around other stitches, but I always seem to have little sticking out bits.
    Thanks in advance πŸ™‚ x

      Hi Kerin,
      The paintbox yarns ship from the UK (sometimes from the US) and usually take a couple of weeks to arrive in Australia…sometimes it’s quicker though. I just depends on customs. I usually thread the tail of the yarn though a needle and weave them in back and forth to secure them. I crochet over them like you do too, but i always leave a tail long enough to weave in also. Hope this helps! πŸ™‚
