Glad I Waited to Decide

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.



  1. Way to crow! They both look great!

  2. It's a woman's prerogative to change her mind. Both crows looks beautiful on their own and they can live together as they are so on the same zone. You're the boss of the crows. haha. You can put them where you feel like.

    Looking forward to seeing your next project.
    Have a great weekend.

  3. I LOVE them both!!!
    Happy spring :) I hope today is a better day in your little corner of the world. Gloomy and very chilly in northern Ohio but not cold enough for white stuff.
    Hugs :)

  5. Such great color! love them both
