Remember the two Crow pieces I was hooking? One was a Crow design by Betsy Reed and the other was my design of a Magdalena-style crow. Plan originally was to make both into pillows but once Betsy's design was made into a pillow decided to wait to do the other. Here's Betsy's Crow with the wonderful Betsy primitive edging I love so much.
Am glad I waited because now I want to enjoy the second one on the sofa table in the living room. Here is a photo taken on the schoolmaster desk but once bound will go in the living room.
Since this may be a transitional decision, have chosen to do a different binding job than normal. A month from now might change my mind and make it into a pillow after all; so for now I'm just folding over the serged edges of the linen and will use it without a cotton or whipped edge binding. In the event I decide to make it into a pillow all I have to do is pull out the stitching. OR..... IF I decide to keep it as a mat just might do that Betsy primitive binding technique I love so much. So many ideas and not sure what to do but am glad I waited to decide.
On this first day of spring we had snow and below normal temperatures. Weatherman promises a better day tomorrow.
Have a great evening everyone and enjoy your weekend.
