I know I didn't crochet this...

but I did make it with the sewing machine I got for Christmas.
So, I guess this blog is more 'jen makes and fixes stuff' than 'jen crochets'! Which is likely to be the case for a while, as I have a lot of crafty (and some, not-so-crafty fixer-upper-type) ideas for my new condo! Now, if I only had the time to make them all!
The reason I put a curtain on a closet on the stairwell landing is that's where my cats' litterbox is. When I was shopping for a new home, I wanted a place where the litterbox would be out of sight, but not totally out of mind (otherwise I'd always forget to clean it out!) When I saw this little closet on the landing of the stairs, I knew I had found the perfect new home! :) I took the door off the closet (because the kitties haven't yet mastered opening doors!) and popped the litterbox in it. The only drawback was that it is exposed whenever you walk up or down stairs, which, when it's just me and the furbabies is acceptable, but if I ever have company, I wanted a way to hide it a little more. And since I am in the midst of planning a belated housewarming/belated birthday party, I needed to get to work on concealing it a bit. One thing that I am very proud of (yay me!) is that I didn't use a pattern!!! I made it up all by myself. Of course, curtains are probably about the easiest thing in the world to 'make up', but I don't care. :)

Shadow checks out the new decor. He's too masculine to admit he likes the botanical print. (I think he just wanted to pose for the camera!)

I *love* your kitty closet. It's things like that (unexpected small closets at the foot of the stairs?!) that make a home unique. Stellar job on the curtains!

I've been around for quite a lot of time, but finally decided to show my appreciation of your work!

Thumbs up, and keep it going!
