Crochet Mandalas and MCP update

Hello all,

Hope all are doing well and good. Today I am happy to share with you two small crochet mandalas and the mega cross stitch project update.  Long time back I have completed these two mandalas but they have got their turn to appear in the blog only today.  Also, the next page in the harmony cross stitch also been completed.  

First about the mandalas.  They are very easy and beginner friendly and can whip up in an evening.  I have found the pattern here. You can find more easy and cute patterns in that site.  

I have used 4 ply acrylic yarn and 4mm hook.  

Next is the mega cross stitch project update.  I am happy that I have finished another page.  



Hope all of you like it.  In my next post I will come up with an embroidery design.  Till then, happy crocheting and happy cross stitching.
