Wink and Mandalas for Marinke

I would like to take this time to say goodbye to someone who has inspired many people in the crochet community. I have been following Wink's blog a creative being since 2012, I was saddened to hear that she passed away this weekend, when her depression overcame her. I will miss visiting her blog because she inspired me with her fresh new designs and made me look at crochet in a new way. Wink has been known for her beautiful Mandalas that have been featured on blogs and in crochet magazines around the world.

Here is a post by her sister telling what happened

There has been a memorial set up by her loved ones called winkmuchloved, where you can stop by to leave a comment or prayer.

Crochet Concupiscence has set up the #MandalasForMarinke project, this is a crochet project in memory of Wink and to raise awareness of Depression. Visit the link above to get information about the project and other ideas on how to honor Wink.

Here is the Mandala I made for the MandalasForMarinke project from Wink's standard mandala pattern found here

I will always think of Wink as the crochet mandala queen!
