When I been my efforts to clear my the table in my office, I didn’t really know what I would find as I made my way through the piles that had accumulated, but two of the items I came across were these spools of grosgrain ribbon:
I had purchased them with the idea that they would form part of the armature that would support my not-quite-completed boho heart mandala.
With the spools of ribbon unearthed, I could either:
a) put them away in a drawer where I store ribbon
b) assemble all the parts of the mandala and make the armature
Once I tracked down the boho heart mandala-to-be with other pieces I had purchased for the armature:
I decided to go with option “b” as once the mandala is finished, it will be easier to put away, and I will not have to keep track of all of the parts that will form the armature.
With that decided, I spent a good part of my crochet time with a 5.0 mm hook and Red Heart Super Save cherry red crocheting around the second hoop that I had purchased for the armature, and before the sun had set, I was able to get a photo of all of the pieces of the future mandala:
But the two spools of grosgrain ribbon were not the only thing I found.
I also found some of the five-round squares that are part of this practically perfect bag project that I began some time in June or July and then set aside when state fair fever hit:
In addition to the square shown above, I had also started crocheting the five-round granny squares, and there were eight in desperate need of having the ends woven in, which I did:
For the time being, I am going to focus my efforts on finishing the myriad partially completed projects that are lurking in my office, so that the next time I hear the siren call of a new project that absolutely, positively, must be started today, there will be space at the table for me to begin.
