Macramé & Latch Hook Rugs Were Popular In the 1970s

August 8th, 2015 · 3 Comments

Macramé was a popular craft activity in the 1970s.  Many different knots to learn.  Colored beads to add.  I helped my mom make macramé hangings when I was a kid.

What Knot To Do

July 28th, 2014 · 7 Comments

Those dreaded knotted curtains are back.  And they’re badder, er, worse than ever.

Here they are from a different angle.

Knotted curtains are like a virus.  They spread to other windows in a house.  Notice the sloppy paint line at the ceiling.

We don’t luv knotted curtains.

People are now knotting bed sheets used as curtains.

Either knot them both or none.  We vote for none.

None, please.

How is a buyer supposed to exit that door with a giant knot hanging there?

Please make this trend go away.
