182

I love the look of the crochet around this rock... the combination of softness & hardness... lightweight & heavy... such contrasts... such beauty...

to me it represents the earth, the world, the attitude of people...
the yarn is from Mums stash & she says it's called silk, although the inside label says rayon but it's lovely to work with even if it's a bit springy[is there such a word..] at times... it had been used to crochet booties for my christening outfit.
this rock I crocheted with the variegated blue so as to represent the sky... clouds...
and this little guy I thought had to be yellow for the sun...
it needed beads to add to it's beauty & sparkle...
and when they are put together we have a ahu

Lucy's ahu ready for her to take back to her new home...
Happiness will never come to you
from the outside,
Not unless you open wide
the door of your heart.

I see earth, sky, and sun!
Beautiful!

"ahu" - I've learned a new word, every once in a while when in the mountians I will see an ahu! Someone has stacked stones. I took them to be markers - yes, you are here.... like an X, marking the spot.

Smiles, C

These are lovely. I just crocheted my first stone this year too. It is a wonderful combination of hard and soft, strong and flexible...
