My daughter, Tiffany, and I will be at this event with bells on, literally — dressed as Hippies (my old leather-strip vests, ankles of jeans split up the sides, headbands, and more).

But we won’t come alone, we’ve been busy making all sorts of crafts which we will have for sale. We’ve reserved two adjoining spaces to accommodate all of the great stuff!

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!

Friendship1Where 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:

Macramé Plant Holder, Pagoda

Pagoda 1Here’s my latest craft activity in macramé. It’s called ‘Pagoda’ and was taken from a 1970 pattern.

Notice I’ve converted my craft room door to a knotting station by placing an adjustable robe hook panel over the top. The pillowcase protects the paint from the hooks rubbing. The three hooks allow me to do plant hangars, like this one, as well as narrow wall hangings from dowels. I have a series of bands and rings (not shown) that bring the work down to eye level.
I hope to have some of these, along with pots, at the next plant sale at Metro Tech Fair (19 Ave/Thomas, Phx) in October. In the next few months I should be placing some on my Etsy site as well, but without the pots (difficult to mail). Look for them.
