The Crossword Puzzle


Last month I finally found the time to finish this crossword aficionado. It's funny when you step back from a piece and realize the parts of your life that get subconsciously added to a drawing.

My grandmother made braided rugs like the one above and a very similar orange radio is on my sewing table. My sister kept budgies as a child. And once upon a time, I had a cardigan like the lady pictured (that despite continual darning, eventually gave way). That said, I've never made Battenberg cake, nor forced bulbs or managed to grow ivy to such heights. So perhaps there's some incentive for future plans pictured here, as well as memories of the past.

I love all the details! I recently went through some art stuff and found a drawing i did of my room as an assignment (draw perspective without using shading), and the detail is so fun. I can identify objects that i no longer have or still have and remember the room that is no longer there....
