These rocks are encased in doily crochet.

Some months ago I learned about crocheting around rocks.  Years ago I used to do a lot of crocheting, –for pillow cases, decorative edges on hankies, attempts at stuffed animals, –things like that.  I really enjoyed crocheting but for more than ten years I hadn’t been crocheting.  I’m not sure why.  When I saw pictures of rocks that had been ornamented with doily-like finery, I had the urge to try my hand at it, too.  I got out my thread and crochet hooks and got at it.  These are some of the rocks I’ve wrapped in thread.  The small one on the front became a Christmas ornament.  The others are more like paper weights.  It was challenging for me to do this, but after trying for a while, I got the hang of it.

I think crocheting must be therapeutic, –like oil painting is.  I feel energetic as I do it and it’s such a satisfaction to see that I’ve done something artistic.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.
