Crows Mate for Life ~ a Wedding Sampler

Crows mate for life and are good parents.  I love their intelligence and their shiny blackness!  We have two crow couples that live in the fields next to our house.  I love to watch them when they all go out to eat, and “talk” back and forth over their dinners.  They are happy and often mischievous!

Check out    http://birds.suite101.com/article.cfm/the_intelligent_american_crow  and pages 4 & 5 out of 7 at http://www.si.umich.edu/CHICO/RainbowCrow/teacher.htm  Crows even get engaged!!

Here is a slightly quirky Wedding Sampler with a Quakerish Crow theme.  Remember to check the first Shared Files box for the PDF and the Picture file.

Size:  97 X 197,  3 colors plus black.

Because you asked! The blank rectangle is there for you to enter the information of your choice.  There are wonderful free alphabet patterns at  http://patternmakercharts.blogspot.com/

thanks to Ramzi, who very generously  posts them in PCStitch and Pattern Maker formats.   A definite site to Bookmark!

  3. Oh t’is such a sweet sampler, and the colors match my living-room so well! Thanks a looooot !

  4. Hi Karen,

    Thank you … I’m delighted that you like my designs. The green, My Shared Files box is a widget provided by WordPress. It appears just under The META section, and just above the BLOGROLL section, on the right-hand side of my blog. I don’t know why it isn’t visible, but computers are mysterious creatures. Perhaps it’s there but just not showing up in green?

    The print in the Box is white, so if the green background color isn’t showing up for whatever reason, and there is a blank space between META and BLOGROLL, the MY SHARED FILES widget may be there, but not showing because the box’s green background isn’t showing. You might try highlighting that area to see if something then becomes visible.

    Please let me know if you still can’t access it.

    Remy

      Thank you Remy, but there is nothing there in the spot that you mention. When I highlight the area a dark blue box appears, but there is nothing to click on. Thanks again, Karen

  5. Thank you so much, I love your charts

    Remy, you have such nice free charts and it says on your blog to check the green box for the PDF. I looked all over the blog and can not find a green box? Thank you, Karen
