Crochet Stones

 Hello all, from the Dale in the Shire in the Land in the Kingdom. I like the sound of that. Without all the bits that come first (Wensley, York, Eng, United) it sounds rather magical. And magical it has been in the recent sunshine.
 This is pretty much what its all about here in the Dale. Sheep, stone, hills and streams. As you can see we're  surrounded by sheep, stone, hills and streams. Not much else for miles really. Perfect!
 Whats a girl to do but absorb herself in her natural surroundings. 
 And how addictive decorating each little piece of nature is!
 Time consuming but addictive.
 And imagine my delight today when my July copy of Country Living arrived and there on page 64, I spied a couple of crochet stones in amongst the treasures on jeweller Emma Mitchell's inspiration table.
Not like me to be so 'on trend'! lol.
Thank you for all the 'Forge' love. (Previous post)
Till next time
love Fi x
Edited to add.... Hi Tracy the crochet is not gathered under the stones but crocheted to fit each stone exactly, believe me a lot of frogging goes on, lol. It's just a matter of trial and error for each one.

I am still laughing at your description of the Shire in the Land...Lovely and so much more...magical!
Did you take the photos? I think I am homesick!
Dashing to finish the scones (must celebrate the Jubilee even if thousands of miles away!)
A big hello from the Pacific NW coast (and yes, I am proudly displaying my brooch!)

Those little clouds in the first photo look like they're skipping over the hills!

Kris said... pretty!!

Tracy said...

Beautiful photos what a wonderful place to live, your crochet stones are super are they crochet rounds gathered at the underneath or is there a special technique? Thanks

Who would have dreamt it? At first I thought it was going to be like the Stone Soup story but REALLY crocheted over stones! Amazing! I love it but not sure I could crochet that good. I've never used thread and I definitely not creative. But so glad someone is and that someone is YOU! Congrats, they're just super!
I love your countryside...I think I could be very happy there with sheep and stones and your kingdom!

Beautiful, they are addictive! I covered some stones a while ago after seeing some on on Margaret Oomen's blog and then managed to buy an old copy of Crochet Today from Ebay featuring her designs.
Country Living arrived on Saturday, haven't looked at it yet so will be 'stone spotting'

I love the crochet stones!
Are you enjoying the Jubilee? Did you have a street party down your way?

I'm having a giveaway on my blog if you'd like to enter, and please share if you know anyone else who would like to enter.

Absolutely love your crochet stones - very artistic - so creative - I like the juxtaposition of the stone with the wool. I would never have thought of this.

They look lovely en-masse I think. NO idea how you even begin something like this and to be able to make it up as you go along...that makes you a genius ion my world! Dev x

As is always the case when i visit, you delight and inspire! And these are no exception.

I am still only learning to get my first stitches on the hook so it is going to be a while before i am ready for all that "frogging"! But a girl can dream.
