While walking the dogs last week I found this tree stump in the field. It was surprising light and surprisingly pretty,
and didn't mind coming home with me.
Since then it has been standing in my garden and I have been thinking about what to do with it.
I love the combination of soft and hard, of rustic and pretty, of crochet and wood.
So I unpacked the left-over wool from the granny blanket and set to work.
For the size of my wood stump I only needed six squares:
Here is how to crochet the granny squares.
Then I joined the squares and crocheted treble crochet around the sides, with double treble crochet at the corners:
I pulled a piece of wool all the way through to be able to pull it tight over the tree stump and put it on:
And now I have to go and join my family for a braai (barbecue :-) ).
Have a fabulous Sunday!
Lots of love,
