Knots & Hairpins


 Thought I needed a challenge!
I have had the desire to create a wall hanging for ages but to find the thick twine at a reasonable cost is difficult....but I found some :)

$1 for 5m is very reasonable! ...anymore and it would not be achievable!
I have bought up big!


 This is where I have got too......I have run out of wooden beads
and I need them to continue the pattern I have started.
I'm knotting 'by eye' so to speak because I don't know what 225m of twine will give me?

I will keep you posted!

I thinks she'll be a bit special when finished?





       Oh and meet The Ladies!
I saw these beauties on eBay and pounced....lets just say I needed both and we'll be eating beans and rice for a while :)

    I also love your newest work, I have been hoping you would do something like this for a while you know...

  5. That wall hanging is simply stunning. You are one very talented lady. My mum just dug up some of her mum's old macrame instructions. They are on very old, yellow paper that looks like it has been written on a typewriter! So I'm going to give this macrame business a try. You are very inspirational.

    Actually if you would like a copy of them I am happy to share. You can email me at bedc@itsbeautifulinhere.com if you're interested. x

    But my heart really skipped a beat when I saw that wall hanging of yours, with that gorgeous colored dip dye lying there on the floor! I really love the way you use color like that! Can't wait to see it finished!
