I was particularly thrilled to see the interview with Nadia Fuad of YARNutopia who shared how crochet helped her cope with illness.
I was really excited to see that there are 3 (maybe 3 1/2) mandala patterns out of the 10. There are many, many people that we can credit with making amazing crochet mandala patterns, but of course I really think that Wink was ate the forefront of bringing the crochet mandala into the eye of the crafting public and it makes me really happy that they continue to be popular in this year of her death.
As I mentioned previously, I’m happy to be one of the judges for this 3rd quarter of The Crochet Awards, formerly known as The Flamies. The judges’ nominations are all in now for the categories, which are all about crochet for the home. Take a look at what we chose, then it’s your turn to submit fan nominations and come September everyone can vote.
I’m happy to share with you today that I’ve been invited to join the team of excellent crochet judges for the 3rd Quarter of The Crochet Awards (which is the updated version of what used to be the Annual Flamies).
The nomination period for The Flamies has closed and it’s now time to cast your votes. Crochet Concupiscence has been nominated as one of the options for Best Crochet Blog. Please cast your vote!
The Flamies, also known as The Crochet Awards, went dormant for a few years but they’re back now and better than ever. You can go nominate your favorites in crochet right now.
I do admit I was a little bit surprised to find out that one of the annual Firehouse Heroism Program’s awards this year went to someone who was being recognized for her crochet contribution to her community. Awesome!
