Doing a little organization and uncovered a few things that need to be finished (baby booties, star box and, a fighting anxiety reminder notebook) and a couple of finished things that need a place to be.

The Dionysus filet crochet is finally finished! (I finished the crochet part in 1979, and it took me until this year to get the ends woven in and blocked).

Someone was asking about my Grumpy notebook, just has pictures of Grumpy in it : D. But Grumpy makes me very very happy : D.


 I covered some banker's boxes to hold music. The individual boxes are really prone to falling over. They are really difficult to cover though. So I put adhesive paper on the boxes so everything could stick to that. Also I put a band of painters tape around the lower part to keep both boxes tied together while I added everything else and just covered it up.

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

Good morning. Sorry, didn't see this last night - turned off early!!! Great idea with those boxes - and yes, I LOVE your grumpy notebook - he makes me smile, too! That crochet is incredible. Will you have it framed? Made into a cushion? Hang on the wall as is?
Organizing - need to do oodles of that myself - just never seem to be enthusiastic enough... well done on all your hard work!
Take care. God bless.

Oh, Bankers boxes...I did not know they were called that! But I know what you mean about being difficult to cover, the tape was a bit of a genius idea! I love the crochet, my word what a great piece. But to be honest Sally, I love even ore that it took you till now to do the finishing bits. I was saying to Jan on the phone the other day that I don't do much multicoloured crochet anymore because I just can’t be bothered to change colour and tie it all in. I dont know which is worse, being that lazy or not having enough pride that I can admit to it! Nice big set of stamps in my line of vision. Is the journal intended for your use? Hate to think that you suffer as a result of anxiet.

Hi there, love how you did the boxes, we call them magazine holders over here. Odd how we end up with different names for the same thing, isn't it?Great job on the crochet too, lovely piece of art. Stay safe, Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #5. X said...

I like your boxes! They look like quite a challenge to cover.
Your Grumpy is cute! And what an unusual pattern of crochet! Looks great! That's quite the busy desk!
Have a wonderful week!

Hello, you’re crochet work is so intricate, you must have 20:20 vision. It’s amazing. It’s very satisfying decorating storage isn’t it. I need to do something with my ikea day....
Take care, hugs from Sue #21 xx

Your covered boxes are great, and the fillet crochet is simply stunning... I haven't done any of that for donkey's years and loved it. I'd love to do some more especially as I've got the crochet bug growing in me again but I have to make a couple of throws first!! Sorry for the late visit but I've been very busy completing my needle books in time for the deadline this week.

Happy belated WOYWW,
