    Smile From isewman-Newest macrame hangers I made & afghan started for grson in Sept

    Here is 2 new macrame plant hangers I made for my sewing room. I use to make macrame hanger, before my quilting epedimic kicked in. Also, is a afghan I've started for my new grdson due in Sept, by my military son, and his wife. They have a 4 year old daughter. I've asked if they have a name yet for the boy, he said NO. I said how about Aaron, and I think he would of shot me. Here are the picture of the hangersName:  Picture 179.jpg

    I use to macrame years ago and really enjoyed it. Is it coming back? Can you still buy the supplies? And do they have different colors of macrame now? Any online sites?

    I love your hangers but especially love the windows they are hanging in front of. Gives you plenty of light and air. I also used to macrame many many years ago (didn't we all) and I loved it, I made a hanging table with a round glass table top. Ummm wonder if I still have that ummmmmmmmmm.
    Great job and the afghan will be beautiful. Thanks for sharing with us.

    You are a true Renaissance man! The afghan is going to be just right, but maybe you should let them name their own baby, yes? The macrame hangers look good in the windows. Those plants will grow well in that spot.
