Counting My Blessings

I've decided to participate in Counting My Blessings!

I was so inspired by 39 Squares that I began to wish I had participated in it. Thoughts began to sneak in that maybe I could do my own version of the stitchalong. I even started jotting down ideas for squares, and taking stock of what supplies I would need...Then came April 20th, when I learned I could vote on a new project - and my vote was cast for counting my blessings.

So now I'm making new plans with a bit of the old wrapped into them. I'm still going to do 40 squares. I turn 40 this year, and I wanted to mark that occasion somehow. And a lot of my blessings may end up the same as my other list. There may be lots of little things from nature and everyday life. I have learned in the last year just how precious every day can be and how little things that surround us can bring us joy. You'll be seeing a lot of those in my squares.

So I've gathered what I have at home. Now I need to go find some fabric to stitch them on...

Welcome to my new craft blog!

 I started using Blogger back in August of 2009. I created my photoblog, Crow Greetings, as a place for my nature photos, but I found my stitch projects making appearances from time to time. I thought about making longer posts there talking about the projects, but since I made that blog with the idea of letting the subject of the picture speak for itself, I hated to start expanding the posts.

So here it is: Crow Stitches - a place for me to show you what I'm working on, whether it be knitting, crocheting, or even embroidery or sewing. Please feel free to comment on the's good to know I have company out here on the 'Net!
