Mark your calendars for plants, crafts, and Groovy fun!
October 29 (Sat) from 8am – 1pm
Of course, I’ll have my book, Baskets for Butterflies.
But that’s not all . . . In honor of my macramé items, I’m going to celebrate the 1960’s and 70’s by dressing up as a hippie!
Where did I find the clothes? (My closet). Where did I wear them? (West High School, which was the original name for Metro Tech High.) There are more embarrassing details below, but here’s the event info first:
Metro Tech High School 1900 W. Thomas Rd., Phoenix (NW corner of Thomas Rd. and 19 Ave.) October 29 (Sat) from 8am – 1pm
While my daughter favors the modern approach, my style is toward the antique. I’ve been crocheting since I was 12 years old and have collected a wide variety of old books, such as the February 1950 WORKBASKET pictured here. The heart doily appeared on the cover of that issue.
I have two of the dainties completely crocheted. My task today is to hand wash them and let them dry flat overnight. Tomorrow I’ll lightly starch / iron both and add the big satin ribbon bow and the narrower organza around the scalloped edges. There’s also a small heart charm to sew into the heart’s tip.
I hope to have the items uploaded to a new Etsy account by the end of the week. I’ll let you know when that happens.
