I have to admit that Mandalas and Suncatchers are two of my most favourite sorts of makes.
I have finally completed this Mandala (15 inch diameter) for my niece over in Point Vernon OZ. I was thinking that it would look good on a sideboard,coffee table or centre for a table
This is from a free pattern called April Mandala by Ella and you can download it from Raverlry. I used Cotton Yarn Katia Capri and Anchor Style and hook Nº 3.
Many thanks for all your help in finding out the name of this little plant that I bought.
As you can see not such a scraggly looking plant anymore as it is doing very well on that shelf by my mini Christmas cactus.
Thank you Ellie from Feltabulous , Julie from My Threadbear Life , Dee from Pointy Little sticks , Sparklingmerlot, and all of you. I checked out your suggestions and I initially thought it came from the Coleus family as it has such lovely vibrantly coloured leaves,although I couldn't find one exactly like mine during my online search.Nevertheless I really thought as they are so varied in colours it must be one of the Coleus varieties
Finally it was Linda from Linda's Crafty Corner who found the exact plant and here you have it.
Commonly known as the Friendship plant and it is from the nettle family... but it doesn't sting!
My blog mascot
As I haven't got a pet of my own I have decided after receiving permission from Lenny boy's Mum to make Lenny my blog mascot! Congratulations Lenny you will be known throughout my blogworld 🐶 😀.His Mum has sent me some photos of him the first one being when he was a tiny little babe and the others much more recent.
Such a sweet little babe who would have thought he would grow up to be such a cheeky stubborn boy! Definitely a quick learner especially where buses are concerned.
Do you remember in a recent post I told you about his obsession with buses and how he loves to hug the heater under the seat in the bus. Well his Mum had to apologise to someone on the bus the other day because Lenny decided that it doesn't matter if his Mum doesn't get hold of a seat + heater! He wiggles through and flops himself down beside anyone who is in a seat with a heater!
One of his favourite haunts to let himself go is up Primly woods in Paignton. Do you notice he is grinning? You don't have to say smile please to Lenny.
Personal hygiene is very important to Lenny most particularly he loves being groomed.
Yessss just right..."a little to the left please Mum"
and a good roll afterwards
"Whoopee!" "I feel so good... watch me run!"
Just thought I would finish off with this photo that I took last weekend when we went on another short house hunting excursion.
More to follow in my next post 🌞
