after getting my students going i had a bit of a wander about and came across Angela doing a bit of macrame. It was a lovely surprise to see quite an old craft technique being brought to life again.We had a bit of a giggle about the old jute macrame plant pot hangers but you know i think one would look really good here in the garret. With a spider plant in of course.
i didn't get this lady's name but she was doing some fine crochet flowers to go on a wooly hat for her grand daughter. They were lovely but what was most interesting to me was the book that she was using for the pattern, it was late 60' early 70's lovely crochet bedspreads in the colours of the day...brilliant i love these old books. My fave book is a little one i got from Hay-on-Wye on Batik circ 1965. it has the best directions ever i've seen in a craft book. We have to be all artistic these days when writing craft books.
