Hello my Dear Friends!!! Fabulous Friday to Everyone!!!
Here in our stone house it’s all about stones! Perhaps you could take a cup of coffee and a comfortable chair … I have many photos again…
The weather is dark, cloudy, cold and wet … but still I had wonderful time on the beach with Hanna. Yesterday afternoon we went to find stones … like we don’t have enough …
We went to see what we can find from this beach near to us…
We were here first time with Hanna and she was worried – as usually – but we had a lovely moment just before it was getting dark. We found lots of stones – some of them good for my new hobby … and some of them just so beautiful!
When we returned home, we washed the stones. They look always so nice when water makes the colours more visible!
I don’t know how to show them to you … all together first … one by one … okey here they are all at once …
I have seen some of these and thought they have to be difficult to do … I’m so happy I finally tried to crochet a stone! It’s not difficult at all and it is so much Fun!
First I made these two white stones with medium thick cotton yarn and simple pattern. I didn’t follow any pattern. I just started with a circle and continued with the ‘net’.
Then I made these two with lime yellow linen yarn. This yarn is quite thin and even I love the colour and the material, I haven’t used it much. For the stones it is the most beautiful choice!
I’ll show you close look for every stone so you can see how I have crochet them. I have started from up – like here you see the circle in the middle.
When you reached the most fat part of the stone, you start to make it slowly smaller. Try during the work that you can still put the stone inside. Then the rest of the crochet I made having the stone in the net. Under the stone it looks like this …
Make just free style crochet to close the net.
I wanted to make one big stone with a lovely blue linen yarn. For this one I made a try with two flowers which I catched together and then continued the net around.
Few days ago I found nice ceramic and now it’s filled with Rosmarin. I love the rough look it has and it makes nice decoration with some stones!
Still there is one stone – I saved my favorite last – you can guess that it’s not going to be the last stone with crochet – I shall make many of them! So here is the sweetie I made yesterday evening …
You see, the Flower found a new place! For this I took photos to show you how I made it …
When you crochet this, it may look a little bit mess, but when it’s tight around the stone, it’s going to be fine.
If you ask from Mr. google ‘crochet stone’ he will show you lots of pages full of beautiful stones with crochet and real pieces of art!
Here are the materials that I used for these stones …
I want to tell you about one unique blog. It has a lovely name ‘Star of the East’! You will be happy to meet Ester and Estella and see their amazing and so beautiful creations! For example marvellous jewelleries with sea urchins and unique bags with gross stitched amd leather details! www.star-of-the-east.blogspot.com (the error is still here, so klik the address).
This is the tray you saw with the stones. I have made it few years ago with wood. The handles are for the cupboard doors and the idea for picture came from an old cushion.
Nero is sleeping and sleeping … he had to go to the vet today. His other ear was swelling and he went to the vet last week. It is ‘aural heematoma’. He is having antibiot and the vet emtied the blood that was under the skin. Today he needed to do that again – now there was only air. We hope he doesn’t need to go anymore and it’s going to be well. First I thought not to write about sickness but it’s always good to know. So if you meet something like this, you know what it is. The cause for it is an injure, scraching the ear or shaking the head. It may get well alone but then usually the look of the ear will change.
Nero was sleeping two hours in the car – his favorite place – and now he came next to me to continue sleeping. He’s fine now and sends you vof vof!
Thank you for your company today! I spend always so lovely time visiting all the wonderful blogs you write! Thank you so much for taking the time and writing your thoughts – I do appreciate that! I wish you a great weekend and lots of sunshine! Maybe you go for a walk to the beach and find some stones …
I love your “crochet stones”. I’ve seen these before on the blogosphere and think they’re so beautiful. I particulalry like the blues ones you made although they’re all very pretty. The sun is shining here today 🙂
Well that’s new to me Teje..crocheted stones! They look very pretty with all their cotton outfits. I am sorry to hear that Nero has been unwell but so glad he is getting better quickly now. Have a sunny weekend; we finally have some lovely sunshine here!
Lovely crochet stones, they are so pretty.
I hope Nero is feeling better quickly. Our youngest dog Sally was at the vet this week to for an operation to remove a lump from her leg. She is going along very well with her bandage and stitches.
Have a lovely weekend.
The stones are such a beautiful idea. Thank you for sharing it. My very best friend loves all things nature and I always try to give her pretty stones for her birthday each year. Now I can make her stones even more beautiful thanks to your post today. Sorry to hear of your dog’s ear but glad he is getting better. Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
Hello Teje! So sorry tht Nero is not his usual happy self! We hope he is feeling much better very soon. Oscar sends him lots of ‘get well’ licks! Your crocheted stones are really, really beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing the ‘how to’. We hope you have a lovely weekend. Ros and Oscar
Thank you Ros and Oscar! We appreciate your concern! Now Nero is awake, he ate and took again his medicine. Tomorrow he is ‘our Happy Nero’ again! I have so much fun crocheting those stones! Sunny weekend to you! Teje and Nero
Makes me want to pick up a crochet hook and give this a try right now. I am certainly book marking it!! They are so strong and delicate at the same time. Sending Nero lots of love to heal quickly! Sending lots of love back your way!! I am always so much happier after a visit here!
Hi Teje,I’m worry for Nero,I think for you he is a friend and a son and I was very nervous when my dog was sick,I have loved them…I hope Nero will be ok soon and that the weather will be nice,see you !.
Your stones are beautiful! I love them. I have been looking at the PurlBee tutorial lots of times but we don’t seem to have any nice shaped stones near out house…will have to go looking for some special ones, they look so good don’t they!
Hope Nero is feeling better those haematoma of the ear are pretty uncomfortable.
