Crochet and Stones

Still messing about with 

Crochet and Stones.



I still haven't quite mastered the "crocheted stone look" yet.  
I'm still working on my crochet stitches.



I do get frustrated when I can't accomplish what I want right away.  

But for the most part, crochet is comforting and the stones remind me of the sea.




Yes, that's Lucy's paw.




I've been getting together with old friends,  having some laughs, sharing memories and saying good-bye.




The calendar is full.

The "packers" will be here Thursday.
The "loaders" and big moving truck will be here Friday.
The "crazy cat lady," 3 kitties, and dear husband leave on Saturday.

Wishing you a fun filled weekend, and a very Happy Mother's Day to all!

Becca

It's a little like reliving our recent move...makes me tear up when I read the part of saying goodbye to old friends...such changes in your life.

Bet you can't wait to get there, and get unpacked. Have a smooth move.

Looking forward to your arrival and hope you have a good trip! Your white crocheted piece makes me think of a starfish. While you were trying to conquer rocks, I was working on a shisha stitch....nearly killed my thumbs.

We will still have our hour long talks. The only difference is that I will be jealous because I will still be here in the HOT, DUSTY, DESERT! And you will be saying thing like, Its raining again..

It looks like a good portable project for this crazy time of moving and upheaval - but as with so many things, I guess it's harder than it looks! and your kitty is no help - except to maybe keep you smiling!

blessings on your move!
