So I was leafing through one of the 24 volumes of the Encyclopedia of Crafts looking for a project to scan and pdf (is that even a verb?) when I stumbled upon this page. I don’t know why, but the idea that this woman wanted crocheted curtains on windows that they would not fit on and didn’t let that stop her, just really impressed me. She did a fabulous job by the way. It makes me look anew at some of the windows here at my house. Now my windows are plenty big enough for curtains, but I paint way faster than I crochet.

Speaking of which, I have been crocheting a very fluffy blue cat forever. I got tired of looking at all that blue fluff last weekend and whipped out these two humorous paintings. It felt good to get that out of my system. Sometimes I just need to paint. I like these goofy critter close ups and think I might have to paint a few more using different but equally bright colors. These two are for sale if you think you’d like a little silliness hanging on your walls. And as always, click on the photo to see it bigger. Enjoy.
