My Next Project!

This is the view from my front door. As you all know, we moved back in December. Our new house is still a work in progress. We have a lot of wall space that we didn't have in the old house and are taking our time filling it up. This wall has been on the top of the list since it is the first thing you see as soon as you open the front door. Hunny and I have gone back and forth trying to figure out what we want to put here- a clock, a mirror, who knows. Nothing felt right. Then my genius of a husband came up with the most spectacular idea! I sent him a picture the other night of squares that I am working on for a new afghan. (He's a good husband, He doesn't really care about yarn but puts up with the pictures! lol) His idea was for me to crochet something and we frame it for that wall. Of course, I went straight to researching a pattern. Twist my arm to crochet, right? I think I found the pattern today! On Ravelry, I found a pattern for a gorgeous mandala by Frank O'Randle. I have made a couple small mandalas before, but never a big one and this one measures 40". I checked the pattern for the bedspread that this pattern is from, and it's HUGE! I am including the link to the pattern, if you want to download it and make it too. This picture is from the maker of the pattern-
I'm not sure what colors I'm going to use yet. I'm thinking blues and greens. When I'm done, Hunny is going to have a guy from work who does gorgeous wood framing work, frame it and that is what will hang in our entryway!  What do you think? I can't wait to start on it!
