    I just made the ugliest macrame tree ever. LOL. There's an award for that, right? I tried to guess an old pattern of tree we used to make when we were in our teens. I think I'll stick to pot hangars and wall hangings.

    Did you do macrame in the past? Make those owls, etc. ;-)

    Looks like a penis-cozy

    And I'm at peace with my makrame-past. Hardly remember anything.

    I still have one of those heavy duty 6 ft hanging planters with the huge wood beads and the original basket. I'm certain this is just a coincidence but I had just unpacked it last night, wondering if I've any place to display 1970s kitsch, but it might be too big for this house.

    I also have a1970s rotating disco ball with spotlight.

    The 70s were very fun.

    I used to macrame hemp bracelets, but quit. I kept getting the munchies.

    My ugly macrame tree now has macrame leaves, which just goes to show you, with a little effort you can turn something ugly into something....not much better. ;-)

    When I look at it I think of this clip from "The Color Purple" when Shug Avery meets Miss Celie:

    Is it possible to make a life-sized macrame tree? I have huge tree branch in my living room I decorate from the various holidays -- started as an entirely white Christmas tree, morphed into a green Mardi Gras tree, and now is an Easter tree. It has to come down and thrown out because I think it has termites!

    Don't worry, it's scrap jute that can be unknotted and reused.
