I have been creating a mandala on a coffee filter every day for a couple of months. They don't take very long and I love them. It is so fun to create a small piece of art that makes me say "oh wow! I love this". No harsh criticisms. I feel like I should take them further as I have stitched into coffee filters so I know it is possible. Maybe it is okay to just enjoy them as they are. I tried the same technique on a doily with a tatted edge. It did not work quite as well. All is not lost, I can salvage it and turn it into something beautiful by adding beads.
