As many of you know, I’m requesting support through Patreon to keep this blog alive and active. Yesterday I shared some new milestones and today I wanted to let you know that I’ve also added new rewards. You can get lots of new things from CC when you support through Patreon
Today’s meaningful post for Mandalas for Marinke comes to us from Danielle Herie, a 38 year old mother of 2 wonderful children who shares that she has crocheted for more than thirty years and death with depression for over twenty years.
I’ve recently enjoyed several terrific crochet books, which I started sharing with you on the blog last week and will be continuing to do this week. Up today: Learn to Crochet, Love to Crochet: Over 20 Hand-Crocheted Accessories and Garments to Make for You and Your Friends by Anna Wilkinson.
Today we have a contribution to the Mandalas for Marinke project from Kayt Ross, a Fibre Artist and Crochet Instructor from Vivacious Art, where she shares that she learned the basics of crochet from her grandmother. She also shares her beautiful thread crochet paintings, which you should spend some time browsing for inspiration!
Two of my favorite weekly posts – the Link Love posts and the Instagram roundups – will be changing dramatically unless you can come through with support through Patreon. Here is the info on what will change and what you can do if you love these posts.
Elene from Cyprus used great rich colors in the 12-round standard crochet mandala that she made for her contribution to the Mandalas for Marinke project.
It’s time for this week’s crochet link love, celebrating all of the inspiring beauty that this crafty community is capable of creating in just one week’s time. You’ll find more than twenty new crochet patterns this week, including great crochet heart patterns for Valentine’s Day, along with some interesting crochet history, world record breaking crochet news and more.
We’re continuing on with our special, beautiful, touching Mandalas for Marinke posts in honor of Wink and in celebration of crochet mandalas. This beautiful contribution comes to us from Alice in France.
