Update on Hawaiian Mandala

The last week I'm only stitching on part 10 of the Hawaiian Mandala. This month it's quite a lot of stitching. Right now I'm busy with the second corner...and when that is finished there will be 2 more corners to go. I will be glad when part 10 is finished.


Part 10 - close up

I did change the orange flowers and their stems. Originally it is meant to be in Thread Gatherer Silk n Colors 175 (Straw into Gold). But that blended right into the fabric and became quite invisible. The stems are now a blend of SnC 175 and SnC 172 (Gingersnap) and the flowers are done with DMC 722.

After finishing part 10...or in between...there is a floss tag hanger to stitch for an exchange and I subscribed for another Christmas ornament exchange as well and I'm looking forward to stitching these smalls pretty much. :)

Looks beautiful. I can't wait for it to be finished so we can see how you frame it. (when you frame it; I tend to throw things to the side for months if not longer then frame them LOL)

This is looking really beautiful. Well done Gabi. The small finishes will give you a much needed boost to carry on with those corners!

This is one of my favorite mandalas that Martina does - you are doing a fabulous job. Can't wait to see the next installment. I know you may have told me - which fabric are you using? It looks like a sand or clay color, but it's beautiful. I've been eyeing this one since it came out. I may have to break down and get it!
