i am so so so so so obsessed with macrame. you have no clue. currently i am in the process of learning how to work it into my practice, but have not come up with anything worth showing quite yet. so i decided to share with you some of my inspirations and ideas. call me a flash back 60s / 70s hippie chick all you want, but man was there some cool stuff made back in the day! as with my collection of books on terrariums and indoor plants, my collection of macrame books are from the same time.
here are my two favorite guide books of the moment... and my jute bundle and ring ready to get started (one of the books featured below is actually a loaner from my dear friend paulanna).
some of the cool creations i have been digging....
this is the amazing macrame hanging sculpture that morgan gifted me at the sale that has been a major source of inspiration. it serves no functional purpose but of making me really happy and i touch it often, or just look fondly over at it. (please excuse the pile of pines in the back. it has been windy and i have had little time to deal with the madness!).
this is what i really want to make (but with plants coming out and around - naturally!) ...
heee heee.... this macrame love is not over... it is just the beginning!
