Colorful Crochet & Crafts

Treasury Tuesday

maRRose - CCC --- Treasury Tuesday, Crochet-Mandalas-04Yesterday the crochet community was struck by some very sad news …..
The colorful, unique and so very talented “one of a kind” Marinke/Wink passed away last Friday – may she have found peace at last.

I’m at a loss for words, so I decided to dedicate this “Treasury Tuesday” to her and everything she meant for us crafters. Her being amongst many other things the designing queen of mandalas, I’ve found some beautiful ones to honor her.

My favorites this week, are Marinke’s own gorgeous designs, and you can find the patterns here.

    • Thank you so much, Kathryn. I always believe there is something to learn, something positive to be found from and in every situation – but quite honestly it’s very hard this time…… Wink was such a wonderful, lovely woman, full of humor and SO talented ……
      It’s probably what you’re doing right now – raising awareness that’s exactly the “positive” and I do salute you big time for doing this! My “Mandala for Wink” is on its way to you, sweetheart! Marianne xx
