oh, i'm sad that your summer is slowly ending- i'm enjoying it through your blog!


I'm so in love with the colors of your naturally dyed yarn. Your covered stones and bamboo pebbles are more beautiful than ever. Oh how I miss that porch table!


I love your bamboo stones - especially with the natural dye
whaaat? don't go summer


for us too, in Virginia. it's the crickets that herald Fall. i collected a few stones in a river in West Virginia last weekend. it's amazing how hard it is to find smooth, perfectly round stones among millions. i'm not much of a crocheter and can't draw but they are a perfect canvas. thanks to you for the inspiration.


A hint of fall is definitely in the air here too!

Those rich, juicy shades are so beautiful, Margie!


Instead we have rich air spring, while the youth of my country are mobilizing for a better future.
your tissues and your beautiful stained.
I love your blog.


this is sad as summer didnt really get going here!

the 4th & 5th photo stole my heart, these colors go sooo well together ! They really do compliment each other, that's what I adore with naturally dyed fibers !

I am delighted to have found this place (through ELK). Beautiful and thoughtful. will be back.


These are beautiful, off to explore your blog ~ I love your header too :)

I found you via ELK.


So beautiful.


have been noticing that slight nip in the air too.....


I love your crochet covered stones and the colours you use are just gorgeous!! I tried it myself using your tutorial. I'm totally hooked now :-) Thanks for sharing.

Really, already? I love that you have chosen to use natural dyed fibres for your stones. They really do look so beautiful. As the seasons change it'll be interesting to see how the tones change. Very beautiful.


The light is changing but the temperatures are not. I think summer will be around for a while yet. I do love the colors and they give me hope for autumn coming.


Come back summer! Time goes too fast for me.


I wish had patience to dye. The crochetted rocks look lovely and summery.


gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. your crocheting mixed with those rich natural dye tones is wonderful, and i'm loving the hint of changing light and air that it echoes. the late days of summer/early ones of fall are my absolute favourite.


Your stones really are beautiful, but I must say we are fighting the coming of fall here on the west coast. We didn't get much summer yet! Oh well, we must find beauty and joy where we can, which is why I keep coming to your lovely blog. :)


I don't mind seeing your shades of autumn in August.


Inspired by your covered stones I have made a few of my own:

Thank you for your pattern, which I found on Purlbee, and for your much inspiring weblog.
