Grandma Coco is not afraid to admit she's old enough to remember the macrame era of the late '60's, early '70's. Clunky plant hangers were all the rage. We never really took to it. Knot (!!) sure why. :) However, it is said for every thing there is a season and it looks like our macrame season is now.
Yes! This is the micro macrame we talked about way back in the summer when we didn't have a snowball's chance in you-know-where of seeing the beads, let alone the tiny holes. But now, with the return of our eyesight, it's full speed ahead.
Bello Modo. And of course, we had them throw in a few beads while we were at it. (Great service, BTW. And only $1 for shipping.)
We picked a design from the book....Zig-Zag Bracelet from page 48....and then we changed it slightly by subbing in the beads we had on hand because we find it really hard to follow rules. Turns out, it's very forgiving. And not nearly as complicated as it looks. We have a whole winter of beady fun by the woodstove to look forward to.
