I Am So Excited That Macrame Is Back
Yes, I did make the big, green, fuzzy plant hanger in mom-mom’s bay window. Kitty made the pot that was inside the hanger. I also made the macrame hangers that were in Granny’s window. Do you remember the macramed Santa mom- mom hung on the door at Christmas? And the huge rope owl she had? I think I should write this story for posterity. . . One day mom-mom and her friend, Shirley, took a sailboat out into the Chesapeake Bay. There was no wind AND no gas in the motor. We (pop-pop, Kitty, Bobby and Shirley’s family – Jesse, Barry and Sandy) had to rescue them in a motor boat several hours later. Shirley and mom-mom swore they didn’t run out of gas on purpose to get away from the men and kids for a few hours. We found the rope that I used to make the owl in the Chesapeake Bay that day.
I still know how to tie a knot. These pieces of jewelry are macramed:

Your orange and yellow necklace is a very colorful version of the above necklace. I’m going to dig out some fibers to knot now. I’ve wanted to make these earrings for some time…
