Surely you thought of macrame

Certainly all of you were reminded of Dad and his macrame and house painting when Zippy discussed her father's ventures into decoupage and antiquing. It was the first thing that came to my mind. The Bill of Rights decoupage nailed to the wall made me think if the large macrame hanging in the dining room. Also, the discussion of all the crocheted items that I can remember people making (margarine tub purses and aluminum can hats) was pretty funny. Who made those? I'm sure we knew someone who did. Of course, I was always a big fan of the hook rug as well (I know I finished one, at least.)


  1. I thought of Dad and the macrame too. The crochet reminded me of the potholders made from 6 pack plastic that Grandmother used to make.
