Sad, sad news. Goodbye, Wink.

Further to yesterday’s sad post of the loss of Wink (AKA Marinke), there have been some thoughtful and kind initiatives within our crafting community to honour her memory and to bring awareness about depression through the creative medium she so loved.

And see a page dedicated to her memory here:


Love and light. ❤


We have lost one of our own.  Such sad news.

A beautiful girl capable of creating colourful crochet art, Wink tragically found herself in the darkest of places.  Wink’s blog ( is one I popped by for crochet inspiration or simply to brighten the day.

The post written by her sister is poignant and sums up the situation with bravery and warmth for her older sister:

Goodbye, Wink.  You will be missed.
