you always make me so happy! and now crocheted rock covers . . . will it never end? I hope not!

I'm going to send you a link to a woman in Mexico who has a blog with her fabulous art, and her obsession with crocheted stones. She does them up in very fine crochet thread...beautiful. Nice work on yours, and good for you for attempting something totally foreign to you. Most would be very intimidated.
Your clutch is looking might fine. Good for you for sticking with it.

I can't believe you are a beginner crocheter. I just finished my first dishcloth (I do not set high goals for myself) and it is a bit wonky. Look forward to seeing what else you come up with. And if you look up craftyminx she offers free crochet videos if you find yourself needing a fresher on stitches and Joyce isn't available.
Have fun crocheting...

Dearest Joyce:
I am seriously impressed with your ability to teach my sister to crochet. I tried to teach her to knit several years back with less than optimal results. I think you can NOT be related to someone when teaching them a craft. Wait.... she has taught me a lot of things about art. Hmmmm I am going to need to come out and observe your teaching style. I think I could learn some stuff from you.
P.S. I promise not to steal your silverware too.

Nice work with the clutch! I thought you were a rookie...?!?

What will you do with your crochet'd stones? I love the look at them, but seem to be obsessed with "art with a purpose" lately... Still, I'd love an opportunity to make a few of these so please share!!

Right away, I thought of the doorstop for the bathroom at my grandparents' cottage - it's a brick with a crocheted sweater very similar to that you've made for your rock, only not quite as fancy (but don't tell the doorstop, it's very sensitive). It's been there as long as I can remember, we're talking half a century, folks! I wish my grandmother were still around so I could show her your rock, she would love it! Your clutch looks awesome, can't wait until it's done!!

Aw..the rock and his sweater are so cute!! Your clutch is looking great..Joyce is a fine teacher. Wish she lived near me!! Heck, I wish you both lived near me or vice versa!

Smiling H U G E. All I can think about is my pet rock way back in the 70's. It would have been so much more happy if he'd had a sweater to curl up in and then bask in the sunlight. I can see this rock is simply smitten with it's sweater, wanting to show all the other rock friends how fine it is, working it, oh yeah. I think it has a future on project runway, or maybe you do. VBG!!!!
The clutch is coming right along and looking good. And excited you will be getting your connection back...happy dancin for you.
