YARN BURST MANDALAS

I know nothing about weaving or spinning, but I sure know I love the colors of Connie Rose's handspun yarns. Connie was kind enough to give me permission to use some of the photographs from her blog, and I must say I love love love these yarn burst mandalas I created from her yarn photos! Wow- eeeeeee!!




Don't you just want to wear these?

I am so sorry, Sue, I mis-read that. I left out the part that Connie let you use the photos, but it was your mandalas! so, awesome in every regard, the beautiful yarn, and the wonderful Mandalas!

They are fantastic and I am sure that Connie will be very happy with them as well. Doesn't she make lovely yarns? And you make lovely mandalas!

These colors are intense and engaging. I have a friend who paints fascinating mandalas. Each one has its own spirit. We can expand our soulfulness in each one.
