Crafty inconsequential randomness in all its glory

I had been admiring these beautiful granny mandalas over at Ravelry and across the crochet blogosphere for some time. Alice, at Crochet with Raymond has a free pattern for them (along with several other beautiful free crochet patterns - go check it out!). Since I have been crocheting this past year and a half, granny crocheting (squares, necklaces, circles, heart, trees, etc.) has been a bit of an obsession of mine. So when I saw these beautiful mandalas cropping up, I had to make one for myself.
So of course, I started with a rainbow colored mandala, (with plans for several more). I used some Lion Brand cotton I had on hand since I am going to be keeping it on our table as sort of a large doily type decoration. Alice's pattern was very easy to follow. And before I knew it....a new rainbow was gracing our home.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
