I had planned a blog post for today and it’s nearly ready to go but this morning I read online the very sad news that Marinke ‘Wink’ of http://www.acreativebeing.com/ passed away last Friday after suffering with severe depression. I therefore feel it is only right to use this weeks blog post to pay my respects – she will be missed enormously by the worldwide crochet community.
Having just started out on my crochet blogging journey, I have looked to other bloggers for inspiration and Wink’s blog was beautiful with her heart felt posts and stunning designs.
I am a regular reader of Simply Crochet magazine and recall many of her gorgeous Mandala patterns in early issues. There is a tribute to Wink on their website http://www.simplycrochetmag.co.uk/ as well as their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/simplycrochetmag?fref=nf
Such sad news and my thoughts are with her family and friends….
