Yes, it's true that I love crows.  The story behind that is my sweet departed Rottweiler Panzer, the son of Shumba.  We bred Shumba once, she had 8 pups which all lived, strange for a first litter.  We sold 7 and kept Panzer.  

Panzer was the sweetest most gentle goofy boy dog ever.  I used to tell my ex he was a jokster.  He'd run thru the field grab a wild flower and run at his mother hoping she'd chase him down for it.  I'm getting off track here.

Anyway, Panzer also thought he could fly because when a crow would caw and fly nearby he'd run and leap as tho he would sprout wings and catch it.  Then the attraction to crows began.

1 Crow Bad News
2 Crows Mirth
3 Crows a wedding
4 Crows a Birth
5 Crows riches
6 Crows a thief
7 Crows a journey
8 Crows a grief
9 Crows a secret
10 crows sorrow
11 Crows love ~~ uh, I'd like to know where that love is??? 
12 Crows a good tomorrow.  But the poem doesn't have a 13th crow so maybe that is where my love went, lol.

Yes, I hooked all of those and actually have another couple Magdalena rugs which also had a crow in them but didn't post.  

Have a great evening.



  1. Crows 6/7, Penny Crow, was in Purely Primitive. It was from a quilt pattern from "Free Spirit" by Gerry Kimmel and Linda Brannock. They were gracious enough to let me use it in the book. I hooked that way back in 1992....eons ago!! Fun rug.
    Love all your crows.

    My most favorite is the first one - the shading is sheer perfection ! Is that one a smaller cut than you normally use ?

  13. I have crows all around where I live they are suppose to be intelligent birds. Your crow rugs are beautiful you are such an artist! What gentle dogs . When I worked at the hospital the dogs that came to visit patients to make them smile were like Panzer gentle and sweet.
