Hi Geninne!

I always love what you come up with. It makes me want to go rock hunting in my backyard now, if it wasn't pouring rain. And oh, I absolutely have to get myself some of that white acrylic ink - it looks to be just what I need!!

totally funny how the word verification for this comment was "cheat" . Now that made me laugh.
I love your faux rock and am honored to be your official rock sister.

This is beautiful! I love the originals, but there's no way I could crochet a rock, but I could definitely paint one! What a brilliant idea!

Your blog is beautiful, both projects and photos. And your work space so well organized! I look forward to seeing what you come up with in the future. I especially love the needle felted birds.

So beautiful, as always.
I haven't commented in awhile, but I peek in every few days to see the wondrous delicacies you always have. And, everything always in its place, unlike my surroundings...
BUT, my lovely treasures from you arrived yesterday - they are SO BEAUTIFUL - so precious to hold them in my hand and not look at them only on a computer monitor. There's something about the tangible....
Thank you so much for your wonderful beautification of this world. I am so grateful!

Wow! That totally fooled me. I saw a crocheted rock on one of my friend's blogs recently and I think that led my brain in that direction here.
