I finished my first macrame project last night and already cannot wait to start another. Discovering Sally England’s simple, lovely work this morning (pictured above) just added fuel to my nascent rope-knotting obsession. My sweet little plant holder doesn’t hold a candle to Sally’s large-scale works of genius, but it was a fun starter project to be sure.
Supplies (two packs of blind cord and a small metal ring) cost me $15, and it took two episodes of “Gossip Girl” worth of time to complete. So yeah, craft-night success! The only downside of the process was having to lock the pets away while I knotted. Twelve 16-foot strands of rope flying around everywhere = heaven for my playful kitty! Don’t let the innocent face fool you, havoc-wrecking could be this gal’s middle name.
Now that winter’s nearly here, have you gotten back into the swing of making things? If so, what are you working on? Who is inspiring you? I’d love to hear!
