What a cool story. And you've just made certain that the dud spud will be passed down many generations and won't accidentally get "peeled" or heaven forbid, thrown away. It's beautiful and so are you!


This is a wonderful story ! It would deserve a book ! What a great and priceless surprise for Deb Dormody's Mom when she'll discover how you "ennobled" the family Dud Spud, with such beauty, delicateness and thoughtfulness (love your little clover tag addition) ! Please tell us about her reaction, if she agrees of course ...
Big hug to you, Margie, our good fairy :)


This is a great story!

magical, all the way around.


such an interesting story !


So sweet of you to have accepted a commisionned order. This stone had a fun story indeed & I'm sure she'll love how you transformed it !! Awesome !
much love oxoxo


That is a fun story. The tag is sweet and special; they will treasure that rock/potato!


What a rock!Exactly like a potato! I am glad you accepted the comission for it! That gives us all who haven't managed to buy one of your crocheted stones from your etsy shop something to hope for in the future!LOL!Ariadne from Greece!

Absolutely delightful! I loved her email and the finished work is marvelous! I'm so happy you took on this piece of work.


What a sweet story! I love to read/hear about these little nuggets of family life. We all have them, but each is so unique. And I'm glad that, as Debbi pointed out, the Dud Spud is now safe from ever being accidentally discarded. How lovely!

What a beautiful and fitting tribute to moms and memories. Lovely work!


so fantastic. both the dud spud, the story and your recreation!! it's one lucky fake-potato.


What a pretty potato/stone it's turned out to be. How fun for you too Margie to become part of the Dud Spud's story. Fantastic!


What a funny story! I really enjoyed reading this post. And it really does look like a potato!


What a delight! Thank you.

How brilliant! I was really grinning whilst reading this. What a funny story.

This is delightful. I love thinking of the laughter that stone must have brought the family as they played their baked potato tricks! Your crochet works so perfectly as you have left plenty of "windows" to appreciate the qualities of the stone.
