I finished the first of the four miniature mandalas I have designed for cross stitch. This is Summer Mediation and is stitched over two threads on a lime hand-dyed jobelan from Wichelt Imports. I used DMC floss and two of Kreinik's new holographic blending filaments. I am going to start Spring Mediation next. This piece was intended to be Spring, but once stitched the colors spoke much more to me of summer and the sun, the vibrant blooming of flowers once they've worked past sprouting and first buds.
