More Snow....but time ...time to sew!!

I got busy and cleaned up my studio....and that gave me inspiration to make a crow doll from the November/December Cloth Paper Scissors I love how he turned out.. now I can't wait to make more..It would be fun to find other artsy folks that would like to make a trade. I used the pattern in the magazine and enlarged it 160%. It is about 10" by 5". I went through my yarn stash and yanked off various pieces and ended up with three gallon zip lock bags full I have lots of fiber at my finger tips for more crows and other projects. DH even went out to wal-mart to buy more black felt for me..then I had to call him to pick-up some orange for the feet and beak.

We got 2 new cookbooks last week from Amazon (thanks to a gift certificate from son & daughter-in-law).

Both are great books....Today from the vegie book I made a Beet,orange & fennel salad that is marinating..That will go with a lemon chicken orzo soup by Ellie. Last night I made a spinach dish that took carmalized onions,spinach, garlic and tomatoes topped with yogurt and pine nuts It so yummy..These are best cookbook by far that we have used.
Well I have more crows calling my name. CAW...CAW..
