Thanks to each and every one of the contributors who participated in the Mandalas for Marinke project. I didn’t get as many posted in April as I would have liked (some extreme jet lag put everything behind) but I’m still on track to wrap up posts in a couple of months and proceed forward as described in the last update.
These beautiful crochet mandalas come to the Mandalas for Marinke project from Kate Graff, known as GrafficDesigns on Instagram, Facebook, and Ravelry. She walks while crocheting and walked a total of five miles while crafting for this project.
Beautiful contribution to Mandalas for Marinke along with Edna St. Vincent Millay depression quote.
Last fall I received a beautiful wooden jewelry frame from eWoodStory, which I filled with some textured crochet. I was happy with what I created, but it’s absolutely nothing compared to some of the stunningly beautiful works of art that have emerged inside of these little frames. They aren’t just filled with crochet – people are filling them with embroidery and other stitchery as well – and I swear every time I see a creation I think it’s better than the last.
This pretty floral crochet mandala comes to us from the blogger at The Grange Range. She says, “I am a mother of four grown children so I now have the luxury of time in which I can indulge my creative self. I like exploring woolly projects in the evening and at weekends, and I love to knit and crochet.”
Today’s beautiful spring-colored crochet mandala comes from Liz of LavenderLizard, a married crochet-designing mom of 4 boys who also loves books and baseball.
This set of Mandalas for Marinke comes to us from Selina whose tagline on Ravelry (@knittedruby) reads, “Knitting and crochet are the only things that keeps me sane in this mad, mad world.”
