This contribution to Mandalas for Marinke (a recycled cotton mandala made using Wink’s 12-round standard mandala crochet pattern) comes from Janet. She can be found on Instagram as @catjan, on Twitter as @janetward55 and on Facebook as Janet Ward (auntiejan). Janet writes,
“I came in contact with Wink when I started the Scheepsjwol CAL 2014. She was so patient and her designs were an inspiration. I understand how crafting in any form can help with depression as I suffered also a few years ago and craft was my saviour.
It is so sad that Wink could not beat the evil of depression. My thoughts are with her family. Hopefully she is at peace now (and shouting from heaven when we get her patterns wrong!)
In love and light, remembering “A Creative Being”.
