Yes, yes, I know I got very little done considering the dog’s bowl is tiny. My excuse is I was working on a little project that will be gifted:

This is Ink Circles’ free breast cancer mandala pattern, done on 18ct caramel Aida with DMC and Carrie’s Threads. I think I put too much Retayne in the water when rinsing the Purple Pansy floss, because it’s pretty washed out. But I like the overall effect because the pink in the ribbon is a strong colour and the unrinsed floss would have made everything a little too gaudy for my taste.
