Oh! I think that the first
one looks like a jelly fish!
Very lovely! I think that these
are wonderful, each are unique.
Where did you get such lovely
geodes?? I remember when I was
a child we went looking for these
stones and my father could pull
one after another out of a old
creek bed, I could never find
one. Then I asked him what I was
doing wrong, he said that what
I thought a geode should look like
is not what it nessairly what
it looks like...I was looking for
round smooth heavy stones that
had a pretty color. I was looking
for the wrong stone. My father
told me that I had to look for
what I was avoiding. After I
changed the way I looked for them I realized I was standing in the
middle of a small ocean of them.
I haven't seen any geodes for at
least 20 years. Thank you for
sharing these it has brought back
some very happy memories.
I think that my father was a
geode, he dies when I was young,
but I can still see his face
smiling in the sun as he bent over
to pick up a stone or call me over
to look at a cray fish under a
stone.
There are definatly geode people
I wish that people would be
more like geodes that other stones
like... gravel. LOL! Remember I
live near chicago. Sad that these
geode people are hiding their
secret loveliness that is their
true self. As always you are right
I think I am going to go out of
my way tomorrow to be nice to my
very gravely neighbor tomorrow.
Thank you for your timely advice.
The geode at the first pic on the
right does it have barnicles on
it? I love the color of it, that
steal blue color is so calming.
What do you think is the hardest
stone to do these kinds of art on.
I could not imagin you using
valcano stone, it would cut the
treads you use. I think after
finding this blog site I have
found a geode in its natural
setting! You are beautiful in
the way you see things! I love
your ginko leaves too! Great
photos as always!
(didnt we see these in the same
wooden bowl before? I have to
go look. Humm.....)
I hope that you feel better than
you did yesterday... please
take care of your self.
Can't wait to see your little
friends all dect out!

brainbow... don't you think?
Just a thought.

Your groupings of objects are pure poetry. Is that a polypore that the geodes are resting on in the shots before the ginkgo leaves?

I don't know much about Native American medicine wheels, but that was my first thought when I saw your covered geodes. Something about the colors, the fringe (which also makes me think of a comet), and the spokes formed by the crochet made me think of those collections of healing stones. How appropriate, since you are a healer and your nature creations serve as a balm to the soul.

Can´t find words for this...its so lovely! I wish my english was a little better so I could express my feelings when I look at those photos. Your love and passion for nature always makes my heart beat....I´m a big fan of nature to, but you already know that :) I must go to the park and see if I could find some ginkoleafs...they are so beautiful.
I´m really looking forward to the snailphotos :)
Thank you Margie, for being such a great and creative person!
Have a great weekend!

They are beautiful!! My day is not complete until I have read your blog. Thank you so much! xx P.S. am off to buy turnip (called swede here ) Many moons ago we made turnip lanterns at school everyone else had a swede but I had an english turnip - about 4 inches diameter....it was soo hard to carve! Have only done pumpkins since so will be nice to use old tradition.

Wow! I have to delurk to tell you these are wonderful!! Your eye for beauty in nature and the poetry about people and geodes is so wonderful!
My children are rock hounds and were very inspired- this would be a great way to display their favorites on the wall or in a mobile!!
Is there a tutorial coming??
Thank you!

Aboriginal summer? Native American summer? The 'correctness' of Indian summer has crossed my mind. What a fascinating time we live in with such concerns. And I think you have showcased the geodes with enchantment, metaphor included. Makes me think of our own inner geode and giving it attention....permission to open....
Happy weekend.

you have such a way with words. i love your analogy. i often find myself looking at strangers and thinking, if only i could get to know them - i bet they are amazing. thanks to you i have become addicted to making rock cozies - or at least that's what i'm calling them. thank you so much for the inspiration.

I have been reading your blog for a long time, always enjoying it a lot, but never leaving a note. But now, with these covered geodes, I just have to; to tell you how lovely they are, how much I always enjoy visiting with you and to announce that I, too, have covered a stone by crocheting. A huge one. My friends are thinking that I am getting weirder by the minute but I really like it. I was thinking of providing it with some mates but maybe it would like the company of some geodes...
Thank you for all the inspiration you are constantly providing and for sharing your amyzing ideas.
Greetings from Gemany,

I didn't realize what was coming and when I found out you'd covered a geode, I was thrilled! So lovely!

You're right. The ginko leaves really make the embellished geode stones come alive. I love the shape of ginko leaves. We don't have any in the area, but I have some crepe paper that exact shade of golden yellow. I must see what I can come up with...

rebekah

those ginkgo leaves are such a lovely colour :)

Elsita :)

Margie, this is a magic post.
Your words and then the photos make everything to be a wonderful experience. I have no words to express the beauty that come from those geodes. The crochete work that you created for them is stunning.
Thank you so much for this blog that makes me experience so many unique feelings!
Lots of love!
Elsita :)

These are simply beautiful and they do remind me of an ocean grotto somewhere. I would love to see a book of your work with some simple projects included. I would certainly buy a copy. Have you thought of self-publishing--but I'm sure a craft publisher would LOVE to have you on board! Blessings to you for helping us glimpse the world with freshness and joy.
