This is Jamie’s first-ever crocheted mandala. She shared:

“It is a 12-round Wink mandala in Lily Sugar ‘n Cream, both solid and variegated, made in hopes that it brings comfort to Wink’s community, helps spread the word about mental health issues, and serves as a reminder of love, art, light and life. I am grateful for Wink’s art and generous spirit and for this memorial to her.”

I love that several people have mentioned sentiments similar to this one, that many people are choosing not to beat themselves up for not being “perfect” at their crafting but instead to celebrate the beauty in what they have made. This means so much to me to see in the world!

This crochet mandala comes to us from Tammy S. Asad, an American who has been living in Kuwait for the past twenty years. She shared: “My cousin taught me to crochet when I was about 20 but my work and ability to read patterns only took off when I started my blog (T’s Daily Treasures) six years ago. Wink had a knack for color and natural creativity that was so inspiring. I found her blog when looking for a mandala pattern and was immediately drawn to her colorful projects.
