Product Information
Specification

This is one of my ongoing art projects I've wanted to create for a very long time. I decided to take the plunge and see where the inspiration would take me.

Yes, this may have started out as a humble river stone and various shades of cotton thread, but has turned into what I think of as a mini-rock garden. 

I hand pick the stone from the banks of the Wapiti River in Northern Alberta, Canada. Close to Grande Prairie, Alberta but far enough away to avoid too many river boats and other wandering folks. As a matter of fact, often times I am the only one I see for the entire afternoon when out by my "Thought Rock" (see photo above).

The item itself consists of 4 crocheted flowers of my own design. All my flower designs develop out of previous attempts until I feel they are just right. I play around with the colours a bit and the layout to know how many additional leaves to add. Once decided, I crochet around the rock to create a mesh and sew the flowers and leaves snuggly into place.

To give you an idea of the size, this piece is about 6 inches (15 cm) across from leaf tip to leaf tip and 4 inches wide (10 cm) at its widest. The stone itself fits nicely in your hand.

Shipping included to anywhere in the world.
