Kierstin shares her story about why she was moved to contribute crochet mandalas to the Mandalas for Marinke project.
Thanks to support from Patreon funders, I’ve got an excerpt from Hook to Heal for you today, sharing one of the exercises in the book that’s about learning to let go.
Today’s exquisite crochet Mandalas for Marinke come to us from Pauline of Making Polly.
Today’s beautiful floral crochet mandala for the Mandalas for Marinke project comes from Monique Lubberink from Easy Now Mindfulness, which is a one-woman-business in New Zealand, through which she gives mindfulness training, mindfulness parenting skills, workshops, etc. She formerly worked in The Netherlands as a psychologist for adults with ADHD and / or autism spectrum disorders.
I was really excited to see that there are 3 (maybe 3 1/2) mandala patterns out of the 10. There are many, many people that we can credit with making amazing crochet mandala patterns, but of course I really think that Wink was ate the forefront of bringing the crochet mandala into the eye of the crafting public and it makes me really happy that they continue to be popular in this year of her death.
Crafter Jennifer shared: “I loved seeing Wink’s inspiring colorful mandalas in Simply Crochet magazine and I purchased her Boho Crochet book this year.
As I mentioned previously, I’m happy to be one of the judges for this 3rd quarter of The Crochet Awards, formerly known as The Flamies. The judges’ nominations are all in now for the categories, which are all about crochet for the home. Take a look at what we chose, then it’s your turn to submit fan nominations and come September everyone can vote.
