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!
