Now this looks interesting....a sort of lap desk specifically meant for making Macrame. They call it "macrame lace". I am imagining window coverings being made this way.

Click on the image below and wonder at the things craftsmen and craftswomen got up to back in the olden days.

What a blast from the past, my teenage years to be exact. I made all sorts of this stuff back then, not curtains, but certainly wall hangings and plant holders. What is the inspiration for posting these? I always thought they were an intriguing art form!

Oh gosh...who knows what twigs my imagination at any given time.

I was looking for knots to fancy up an armour, and found this. Aint they cute?

Funny, this book looks old, wonder what year it was published?
