Crafter Jodie writes: “My contribution is a variation on Wink’s “I Love Holland” crochet mandala pattern, which she made to celebrate the coronation of King Willem Alexander of The Netherlands.
Crafter Jenny says: “These two mandalas, Wink’s designs, represent a small tribute from my crochet group here in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, UK. Several of my ladies have found their knitting and crochet has helped them through difficult times.
These great crochet mandalas come from Linda in Indiana who says: “I am new to crochet, having just learned from a friend in March. I found Wink’s blog and book almost immediately. I am deeply saddened by what has happened. Wink is a great inspiration to everyone. I say is, not was, as her work will carry on forever with her patterns and blog.”
Today I wanted to provide an update on Mandalas for Marinke and remind you that there’s an upcoming deadline! All of your mandalas should be postmarked by October 15, 2015.
This superb crochet mandala is made using Wink’s I Love Holland mandala crochet pattern. Maker Michelle says: “My prayers for her and her loved ones are stitched into a piece of her art. May it give comfort and raise awareness.”
I love all of the crochet mandalas that come in for this project. Sometimes I think I like the thread mandalas best. Sometimes I like the floral ones. But today looking at this one I think maybe I like the rainbow crochet mandalas best. This one is worked with rainbow colors, from outside to inside.
This crochet mandala reminds me of watermelon but also of flowers in the grass. Beautiful!
