The book that I’m looking at now is called Mandalas and Doilies to Crochet: Delightful Designs to Brighten Your Life. This book doesn’t particularly differentiate between the two (mandalas and doilies), considering both to be round, typically colorful, crochet designs. The idea behind the title is to take inspiration from vintage dollies but to recreate them as absolutely contemporary decor, primarily through the smart use of bold colors.
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.
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.”
This contribution to Mandalas for Marinke comes from Carol who is, “someone who knows how hard it is to get through the dark days”.
This contribution to the Mandalas for Marinke remembrance project comes from Christa of TheCurioCraftsRoom.
These mini mandalas are from Karen who writes, “An appropriate remembrance of Wink and hopeful a reminder that there is help and hope for those suffering from depression.”
This contribution to the Mandalas for Marinke remembrance project comes from Patrizia in Italy.
