My Thoughts 

I was born in the 70’s. One of my aunts had a shit ton of macrame plant hangers and decorations hanging from the ceilings and walls. Her home was always a place of comfort, support, reggae music, and consistently overdone-on-the-bottom cookies. Perhaps all those  are what lie behind my enduring love of macrame? 

After the beginning tips and techniques, this book opens with plant hangers oh-so similar to those I used to see as a child. This chapter is followed by wall hangings, and home decorations. The layout is appealing and soothing. The author’s guidance is encouraging and kind. The photos in this book were all so appealing that they made me want to immediately go out and get all the supplies needed to start my own journey of macrame. 

This is a lovely book that serves as an inspirational and instructive guide. I’m so pleased to have received a electronic copy of this wonderful book from the publisher and I am planning on picking up a physical copy for my own crafting.
