A little while ago, I wrote about the frustrations of using CSS. There is no denying that CSS is powerful, but it can prove challenging to accomplish what you want.

I suppose it is inevitable, there are 7 billion+ people out there, a few of them must be exceptionally good with CSS. But I think exceptionally good is underselling Diana Smith‘s skill.

This morning while checking out HN I saw this: https://diana-adrianne.com/purecss-lace/. The whole image is created with CSS.

My mind is completely blown. If you analyze the source, sure enough, there is no cheating. It is pure CSS magic.

It just goes to show, with enough practice amazing things can be created even with the wrong tools for the job.
