Playing with ojos de dios


A couple of days ago i have seen a wonderful mandala.
Searching around and googling and youtubing i found out what it was.


here you can see more of these beautiful mandalas :

There are also quite a few artists from Russia who make them.

I ordered Monday they instructions from jay, and i played a bit …. here the first tries

Because i had just barbeque sticks, i tried with them
and because the baby wool i had, was to elastic, i got out my cotton yarn


Just a tip … don't waste your time with barbeque sticks … they are to thin and break


So i went today and got me some bamboo sticks
Marked them as suggested in the instructions and started off with the centres
can you see how messy the middle is ?



and then, when i tried to fix them together …


Me was ANGRY !

but i found out how to make a nicer looking middle and then i did a 4 sided one


it is not yet perfect, it is really not easy to wind the thread even around the sticks
But i like the first one :D
