Hi there! Glad you stopped by! Want to see my third crochet decorated rock? You do? How nice of you! I found this stone in the rocks by our pond - I think it's one we picked up by the side of the road when we visited Mt. Rushmore in 2010. It's a gorgeous pink granite. I decided to free wheel the pattern this time, and I did a lot of experimenting and ripping out but it came out nicely. The rose quartz behind it we got at a rock shop in the same area.
I love the contrast of the hard rock and the soft lace.
I am using KnitPicks "Curio" crochet cotton and I love it! I chained 12, 24 sc in the circle, 24 triple crochet with 2 chain between, you slip stitch each round and sometimes up the top of a loop - after the treble row, sc in top of the trebles, chain five.. then keep doing that until it fits your rock, then decrease by doing double crochets closer until it's cinched down on the rock well.
My 3 rocks. I need more rocks now! :-)
Modeling by the pond. :-)
I was bored the other day and converted several of the photos I've taken recently into "watercolors" using the APP -- "Waterlougue". I adore this app! You can get it in the App Store on you iPhone. I'm not sure if it's available for non-Apple phones. You just open the app, click on the camera icon, find a picture in your photo file, and it will turn it into a painting! Then you save it by clicking on the heart icon. You can select at least a dozen watercolor techniques.
The sternwheeler in watercolor.. love it.
I also love how the red paddle wheels look.
The peaceful and beautiful Columbia River Gorge.
A watercolor of my crocheted rock? Too much? Maybe? :-)
This is the 29er sailboat racing clinic that was going the day we were on the Sternwheeler. The 29ers are a 2 man high performance sailing skiff.
Passing in close quarters.. wahoo!
The Hood.. my mountain.. which I share with Gracie and a LOT of other people.
I love how the teepee village at Kahneeta came out in Waterlogue!
And this one with the canyon walls behind it..
The 3 little bears spouting water into the pool.
Which is your favorite? OK, time for lunch with my honey and then head off to the pool. Tomorrow I volunteer at Multnomah Falls with my sister Denise. I hope your week is going well! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
