Daily Color: “The perfect plan is to have none.” –Marty Rubin

This one did not go according to plan.

I had planned a lacy star mandala stitched over the gold foil, with embroidery and beads.

But the stretchy lace disc I knit wanted to be a circle, not a star. And the glass bugle beads I had planned to use wouldn't slip over even my tiniest, finest sewing needle. Finally, I threw some scraps of novelty yarns at it instead, and found a gold pin that had belonged to my mother to use as the focal point.


I rather like it!
