    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.

    I love to Macrame!! Only second to quilting.. Did a lot of it,gave it away as gifts.. sold some.. Made one huge plant hanger. Still have a hanging table in a bin packed away and a Merry-go-round with horses. a few other things.. can't find out where to buy the cord here in SE Ga. your hangers are so nice!! I don't crochet but that square sure looks good to me.. Bonnie

    Very nice! Haven't ever learned to knit or crochet but did some macrame when I was in high school. My daughter let me name her first child. His name is Ethan, he is 14 now and a real blessing. It was an honor to be able to do this. Thanks for showing your work and blessings on your family.

    I used to have a house full of plants but got rid of them as it became so much work. I did love the macrame hangers tho and tried a few myself. You did great on yours. The afghan should be wonderful. I love them in the winter to keep warm. I used to knit and crochet a lot but now mostly do quilting--the hands have a harder time with the needles and yarn now that I'm older.

    Your macrame hangers are beautiful and you bring back memories as I can remember doing those some 20/30years ago. I even made the beads at the local ceramic shop. Good job.

    I love them!! I used to make macrame many, many years ago and forgot how to do them. I love your sewing room with all those wonderful windows. What a great work area. That afghan looks soooo soft and cuddly for your new little grandson due in Sept. Great job on all of it.

    Great job on all of your projects. Neat sewing room. I used to do macrame too but I guess quilting has replaced all of my other hobbies.
