I didn’t know I would make my co-worker a mandala/dreamcatcher. Not in
the beginning. I didn’t know what I was going to make. It just kinda came to me.
So I made one. Gathered up all the stuff I had..and made one.
I gave it to her on Monday..
And the next Monday, I read about Wink.
Kinda threw me for a loop.
I love her work.
Her use of bright colors.
And sometimes not
I have always been drawn to circles, so her work really resonated with me.
She will be missed by so many.
So many that didn’t know her personally, but she made a difference in their
lives by designing healing mandalas.
Sounds a lot like what I was feeling.
So I dug out an old magazine..
Settled down with a candle, yarn and hook.
And got to work.
Me being me…
It’s not perfect because I have trouble reading patterns sometimes..
I should learn to read charts….
But anyhoo..Onward I went.
Took me about 3 hours or so.
I blocked it and everything
Kathryn has put together a project to raise awareness about depression.
I wish I could see the project when it’s finished. I bet it will be Beautiful.
When I was about halfway through my mandala, I got an e-mail from my LYS.
Jennie from Jennie’s Yarn Shop sent out a newsletter letting people know she & Natalie will be in the shop on Sunday the 5th to help people make mandalas.
I hope to go.
If not, at least I made a mandala.
Funny how everything just…I don’t know the word.
Kind of like:
This happened, then this, then this, etc.
And this, my friends, is why I keep my writing to a minimum!
Also, people are wearing flowers in their hair for wink.
Here is mine.
I love how the crochet community has come together to support one another.
If you read Kathryns post, you can see more people speaking out about depression in the comments section. That’s always a good thing.
I’m gonna say bye for now.
RIP Marinke aka Wink
