Dutch Mandala #MandalasForWink #MandalasForMarinke

Two resin model bunnies flank the mandala made in Dutch colours: orange, red, white and blue.  Rings of red cluster stitches represent tulips with a touch of green beneath them for the foliage.

These two Dutch bunnies hopped across their shelf today to discover my tribute to Dutch crochet designer and author, Marinke Slump, also known as 'Wink' from the blog A Creative Being.

Tiny Flower

A crocheted flower worked in fine size 80 thread. The 40 mm diameter flower has a 22 mm green centre disk, with 14 hot pink petals around it. Two threads can be seen to the right of the flower which will be used to attach the flower to a card.

Last night I made a tiny flower from very fine thread and I think I will be needing glasses very soon!

A Tragic Twenty-four Hours

Last night, my family and I were greatly saddened to learn that the well-known and well-loved crocheter and blogger Marinke Slump of A Creative Being had lost her battle with depression.

This morning, I woke to the news that Phil Walsh, Adelaide Crows' coach, had died suddenly overnight in tragic circumstances.
