the stone project begins

My stone project is officially underway.  I started off with my own stone, stitched this past weekend while having tea with a friend.  My initials and a sloppy "Minnesota" are stitched on the bottom.  I'm hoping my word stitching improves with practice.

My friend Julie visited me this summer and brought with her a baggie of sea stones.  Her stone has been felted and I've begun stitching.

Though I didn't really expect any stones to be here already, I checked the mail yesterday and there it was, my first mailed stone!  I was so excited I was grinning like a fool walking out of the post office.

Thank you to everyone who has sent stones on the way.  I can't wait to see them.

If you know anyone else who would like to send a stone my way, I'd love it if you'd share.  The more stones the merrier.
The original post, explaining what I'm doing is HERE.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Do you use a circular needle to stitch on the stones?

Thanks girls! I'm getting my biceps fired up.

Penny - no, I use a smallish straight needle.

I am going to send you a stone! But instead of my name could you put my grandson's name? He collects rocks from everywhere we go and I think he would love to have his name on it we live in WV do you have that state yet?
