Onto the Next Project

In a previous post I implied the next project would be Betsy's Crow design and make it into a pillow.  Would you believe I'm still on my game plan?  No detour!

Did yard work yesterday and drew a pattern today to ship tomorrow, so only accomplished a wee bit of hooking on Betsy's Crow.  FYI!!!!!  see those extra drawn lines at the perimeter?  Those were NOT mistakes of Betsy's but rather me thinking of changing the dimensions to fit the pillow form I have here.  Uh....nope, changed my mind.
Betsy's design is 12 x 16 and my pillow form is 14 x 14.  So decided to keep Betsy's dimensions and I'll use the lesson learned from Betsy in our class a couple Novembers ago.  You'll have to follow the blog to see the process.

Also did the preliminary work so my pillow will have the Betsy primitive bound edge.  Hmm, haven't read about that?  Well dear pals guess you'll have to stay tuned to see how everything unfolds.

Have a great evening and let's all be kind to one another.



  1. Yea, you've started your crow pattern. I'll be checking in to see your progress.

    I'm in Ottawa and although I don't have to take care of the calves, I have two little boys who wants to play with grandma a lot and they keep me on my toes.
    Hook on...

  2. Oh, you will be done with Betsy's crow in no time!!! I still have yet to try Betsy's binding technique.
    It was warmer here and the snow is melting but we still can't see the grass. Soon, I hope.
    Hugs :)

  3. Sounds like you had a busy day. I actually did the pattern and only minor messes, lol. Now it is getting me in the mood to hook something.



Thanks for taking the time to visit and I always welcome comments.
