"Counting Crows"....

Threadwork Primitives "Counting Crows"
32 ct. coffee dyed linen w/ DMC

I just loved this design from Nan (Threadwork Primitives)when I saw it and decided to stitch it up.  I love it even more finished!  The "red thread" she used is 3777, which oddly enough is one of my favorite colors.  It has more of a "rust" tone to it and I love it with my favorite "rusty red" checked fabric.  The result....this cute little pillow.

Happy stitches....

  1. Another finish! And crows - my husband would love this one.

    Have to ask - where did you get all the spools? I have a sand timer made from spools. Love those things!
