"Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it." Michelangelo
The "Stone" wanted to become a flower, the "Stone" exactly sad it to Bertie Bean (in my favourite children story written by Ervin Lazar). Bertie Bean carved a beautiful flower from the Stone. The "Stone" was very happy and confident until the autumn arrived. He was looking through the window and saw that the real flowers were fading. "I want to fade and decay too!"- said the "stone" to Bertie Bean. "But how? Stone carved flowers never fade!?" - said Bertie Bean. "Bring me back to the hillside! Water and wind will help me to decay."
My Carnation iPad case pattern is ready. Crochet a flower which will never fade!
