Hello my friends! How is your week going? We've been rather busy this week but today is a fairly calm one - we're going shopping for groceries this afternoon - I am making a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for a birthday dinner for my twin older siblings, Robert and Roberta tomorrow. On Sunday our daughter's husband is coming for dinner as he's in Portland on business. We're making a baked ham and scalloped potatoes and have invited our older son's family too.
Travis and Kristi brought me two rocks from their beach trip and I've crocheted a new "cozy". Can you pick out the new one? Which one is your favorite?
It's the one on the right! I've been using a crochet doily book for patterns for the centers of doilies that would be pretty as rock covers. I really like the open work of this last one as it shows a lot of the rock itself.
Do you like the new one?
It's kind of fun to stack them up, the boys actually like them and like to play with them.
So, if you want to try one of these, find a nice rounded rock, I like the flat-ish ones, and oval-ish ones. Then find a crochet doily book - they should have a lot of them in the thrift stores, craft and yarn stores. I use a size 7 steel hook.
I'll be sure and show you how the carrot cake turns out. :-) I hope you have a terrific weekend!!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
