Hello there, how are you doing today? I had a creative weekend of resting and crocheting. I'd seen crocheted rocks in the past on other blogs and did some googling on them and have wanted to try one for a long time. This weekend I went out and found a rock by our pond and found a pattern online by Margaret Oomen and began my project.
The rock in need of adornment. This is a big-ish one, covering most of my hand.
The beginning... yes, that is Dayle's foot in my photo. And toys on the floor. Whatever. :-)
Tools of the trade, my silver crochet hook in size D and my sewing scissors. Silver hooks are made by my friends John and Molly from Celtic Swan.
Almost covering the top, one more row of lace then you begin the decrease rows that cinch the lace top in place.
Done! I am very happy with it. I took it out on my "sitting rock" by the pond for it's photo shoot. Smile for the camera! Yes, that's it! :-)
Nestled in the moss of the pot that Dayle's little Bonsai tree resides.
My pastel Lantana finally bloomed.
And the red one, too.
The koi and pond goldfish came to say hello.
On the table..
Welcome to your new spot.. :-)
Last night I made a smaller one but will have to look for some bigger, roundish, flattish rocks.. a trip with the boys to the river beach?
The small stone is granite, I'm not sure what the bigger one is.
And the small pillow that I crocheted a cover for - this was supposed to be the back, but I like it better than the front! :-)
Full granny side.. which side is your favorite? I decided to crochet it right onto the pillow and add an edging.
Kristi picked 3 buckets of raspberries at her grandmother's house and made all this jam.. and even more a few days ago. Nice, huh?
Our apricot colored rose bloomed.. I just love it and it smells divine!
We're having a run or gorgeous days.. how is your summer treating you? I'm off to an appointment and then swimming. I hope you have a good week ahead. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
