An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

This is the front of my mandala cushion. It measures 36 cm across. There will be one more row, to join the front to the back and form a border. That is, once I get the back right. My first attempt turned out to be half a hexagon, rather than a semicircle:
More research needed!
I managed to work in most of the thread ends as I worked the front by crocheting over them. I started each round in a different place so that I could crochet over the beginning thread in one place and then the end thread of the previous row in a different place. I read about an invisible join, but was put off by Dedri Uys's warning that it needs to be absolutely correct or the mandala would be distorted.
