My favorite activity this summer has been crocheting. I have loved learning something new. I have an entire afghan almost completed and decided to try my hand at some lace crochet over rocks. I figured out the patterns and feel so happy to have learned this technique as well.
So, here is my little Maine vacation craft photo-shoot. Here is a little fish crocheted over a stone.
I crocheted a little starfish out of linen warp thread. It is resting on top of a crocheted sea urchin stone made with cotton thread. Both stone patterns came from A Resurrection Fern.
I am now hunting about for a new project-- a linen warp bag? a lace shawl? I guess I had better finish the afghan first. I am so happy that we've all had some crafting time. I know that once school starts, we'll not have time again for awhile (although Christmas is coming!).
