Just finished these little crows, well the whole peice is 24" tall so I guess they are so little. These are dedicated to the crow that I saved last week that was stuck with its head between the slates of the fence. They are mounted on a conk that is a fungus that grows out of old growth pines. I have a logger friend that brings them to me. They make great bases for my creations.

Thanks so much Barb, out of all the things I have made or can make I have never made a quilt.
Your work is awesome and I love all of the things you do. I wish that I had time to quilt but I have to make a choice of what to do and quilting isn't on the list. I will leave that to you and those that can do it. Maybe we should do a trade. HUM?

A quilt in fall colors would work for me. I love the primitives, fabrics and design. If you are serious I would love to do a trade. Show me what you have in mind and we can work something out. These are my colors sort of.
If your were to ask me my color scheme in my home and life it would be this all year long. I lean to the reds and golds and greens.

Barb, I changed my mind. I have decided that I would rather have two place mats or a nice square tablecloth. My kitchen is the same colors as the rest of my house is is also along the primitive decor. Old kitchen utensils a lot of wood Well, here is a picture.

I detect a Southwest influence here. Is that the look you had or want? I have a great idea now though...I'm sure it will work!!!!

NO NO NO !!! I don't want SW as we just left AZ about 6 years ago and I am trying to slowly eliminate that decor but my husband has certain pieces that he is attached to so I am trying to blend them into the primitive decor. Where did you... awe, I know from the rugs heh? Those did come from AZ but I am waiting for new flooring in the kitchen as those are make do for now rugs. Hehe. I can see where you got that impression now. Look more at this and that is where I am headed but with my color scheme that I have shown you.
