Dillmont's Encyclopedia of Needlework is a treasure I inherited from my grandmother in 1989. I never knew that there were so many aspects to needlework. I finally discovered that I was really good at something. This was my introduction into whole new world. Until then reading was my only hobby. Last year, I happened upon Split Ring Tatting. I realised even if I learn about needlework to my dying day, there would still be a lot of things I'd never even heard about.
This macrame bag is one of the treasures I found among my hoardings. I remember my mom making it about 30 years back. Done with black nylon cord, she used the bars in our kitchen window as anchor. I used to be a facinated 12 year old thinking that my mom was some sort of goddess. It amazed me how she could turn a bundle of nylon cord into a work of art!
She has used rows of the basic reef knot between rows of various other knots.
For those of you interested in learning this facinating art of knotting, hop in here and get knotty.
