A Craze of Crows


Thanks to inspiration from Kelli Perkins, I crawled out of my normal box and discovered the wonderful world of crows. No ordinary crows, these. They're all dressed up in un-crowly outfits. What fun - and what a glorious mess I made dragging out fabrics, beads, paint, yarn, thread, and more. I do wish the shiny beads showed better in the pictures. I'll make more when my arthritic thumb recovers from all that hand stitching. But what's a little ouch when you're having fun! Here's the link to see Kelli's originals at herblogspot

Those look delicious. I can't wait to sink my unusually large teeth into them.

They crows are charming! Willie says, "Do they taste like chicken?" He's so bad, but not as bad as Clarence, of course.
