Crochet covered rocks

Why crochet over rocks you may ask? Well, the results are very beautiful with the contrast of the lace over the hard rock. And the covered rocks are very useful to hold books open while cooking, knitting, or as below, while reading outdoors. If you look closely, you will see that I am almost finished reading War and Peace, for the second time, the first time being between 35 and 40 years ago. I am on page 1118 of Volume IV, Part Four, XVIII.
I am reading as part of the Team Tolstoy read-along with the Dove Grey Reader troika riders.

I love using this small quilt on the outdoor table for breakfast in the summer.

Here is a close up, but I do not think you can read the print.
