WOYWW 591


 The state of my desk this morning. A Grumpy Journal in the foreground, and proof that I succombed once again to the siren song of a new Tim Holtz color. This time it's Crackling Campfire (swoon emoji). 


The big news is that I finally finished this filet crochet of Dionysus with all the ends woven in and blocked. I finished the crochet part in 1979, and learned how to do it from a book (Reader's Digest Guide to Needlework long before the internet was a household thing), but didn't really get the whole end weaving and blocking thing. I managed not to lose it through 12 or so moves. It was crocheted out of actual thread because I had real vision back then. So the finished piece is new and vintage at the same time lol.

For more  crafty peeks go to Julia's Stamping Ground : D.

That is a beautiful piece of crochet. I love the new TH colour too. I have been buying the colours in advance as I haven't come across one that I don't like yet. (Negative result in here). Stay safe and happy belated WOYWW. Sarah #5

Hi there, wow, thats an amazing piece of work. And equally amazing not to have lost it in all those moves! We moved about 600 yards once, to another house in the same street, and I lost a box full of kitchen stuff! And we did the move ourselves, lol. Stay safe, have a lovely week, hugs, Shaz #6 X

Hi there. That crochet is great - another project finished this year - aren't we all doing well?! Well done on managing to keep it all these years, and never lose it. Brilliant.
But do tell, why is your journal grumpy? Lots of folks seem to be liking this new Crackling campfire colour...
Take care. God bless.

Great piece of crochet and well done at finally completing it. I have to be honest, I have plenty of half made projects. I have only just bought the Speckled Egg Oxide, keep telling myself that I have plenty Oxide inks and don't need any more so we'll see. Wishing you a lovely creative week and happy belated woyww, Angela x12x
