Spring is officially here. This is probably the prettiest time of the year where I live. Everywhere is green and there are flowers and pretty things are appearing all over...including here on my blog:
My latest project, a paperweight.
I've seen many beautiful crochet-covered stones on pinterest and have been quite inspired by them.
I bought a new magazine for this doily pattern:
I started to make it and a few rounds in, I thought the motif would be perfect to cover a stone with, so I made two:
...checked that they covered the stone...
And started joining them with single crochet
Everything was fun up until this point and then it seemed like all of a sudden the stone grew a whole lot bigger!
But with the help of a bunch of safety pins and a lot of pulling at the thread and hook, I got there in the end.
I got some new cotton thread last week:
I'm planning on making some colourful spring earrings and maybe another doily :)
What is spring inspiring you to make?
Have a wonderful weekend!
