Kim, i like the way you've used the beads instead of stitching on this one!
And how do we tell the difference between a crow and a raven? I'm not sure anymore what we have of either in Calgary!

thank you Arlee, the bird is actually machine stitched but very lightly and along the print lines so it isnt' so obvious. I have several more of these that I'm planning to machine and hand stitch though.

As for telling the difference I think it has to do with size and the tip of their beak but I'm not sure, they do look "different" when you see them together.
