i grew up in the 70s and not once, never, did i tie a macrame knot.  like, never. 

macrame was not part of my world.   

so, i’m sure you all saw the incredible macrame wall hangings by sally england making their rounds on the internet.

i was inspired. 

surely i could teach myself how to macrame. 

so over the summer i picked up a vintage macrame book at the flea. 

and i looked it over a little.  and i put the book down and forgot about it.  but then i’d pick the book back up, see what i needed for materials, think about it some more, and forget about it again.

recently i was poking around the ol’ internet and came across a simple project as a nice jumping off point into the world of macrame. 

and i’m proud to show you my first EVER macrame project. 

the precision.

the detail.

i’m practically THERE  on making it into the wall hanging hall of fame.

    You are a CRAZY lady……lol. I think you should be prepared to win a blue ribbon somewhere, somehow…… Actually, he reminds me of Jack in the Jack-in-the-Box commercials. Do you have Jack-in-the-Box back there? Really good bad-for-you food……yummmm

      much like macrame, i have never, not once, been to a jack-in-the-box. i have lived a sheltered life. but i googled “jack-in-the-box” and the commercials are pretty funny, and yes, my masterpiece macrame doll looks like it could be the fetus equivalent of “jack.” v. funny.
