    The Crows Nest

    My Mother, also a Board Member here, lives atop a ridge in West Virginia. She wanted a sign outside to withstand the weather, that said "The Crows Nest". I don't know much about making signs for outside, but I knew I could quilt one. I googled a crows nest, blew up the picture, and made a wall hanging for inside. I gave it to her for Mothers' Day. Here's my version.

    Very neat! It looks very Edger Allen Poe-ish(sp) even though his poem was about a Raven.

    Truly one of a kind - I like it.

    I think crows are intriguing birds - smart and aggressive - and handsome!

    looks awesome-crows are such intelligent family oriented birds-they get a bad rap sometimes.

    You did a great job on that! It's very realistic looking.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
