I miss doing the weekly roundup of Link Love shares, featuring all of the awesome things people are sharing and making in crochet, which I had to cut out of the blog because of how time consuming they are. Every once in awhile, I get an awesome sponsor who helps me bring an edition back, which is how this post comes to you today. A huge thanks to American Yarns for bringing us this post.
It was over one year ago that I launched the Mandalas for Marinke project to honor the work and life of Marinke Slump from A Creative Being and to raise awareness about depression and mental health issues. As of yesterday, all of the individual submissions have been posted.
Leanne writes, “I am also someone who suffers from depression. My crochet hook is my weapon in my battle against this illness. Stitch by stitch I’m taking back my life.”
This contribution to Mandalas for Marinke (a recycled cotton mandala made using Wink’s 12-round standard mandala crochet pattern) comes from Janet.

This contribution to Mandalas for Marinke comes from Temesia who writes, “I am an avid crafter. I always have about five projects going at the same time. They keep me sane.”
