 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.
