And the winner is....
Sarah Price, best selling author of Amish romance novels, released her latest book at just after midnight this morning. Newberry Acres hit Amazon at 12:01 and to celebrate, she hosted a live Book Release party on Facebook last evening.
For her fans, she held a contest offering this sweet little macrame hanger, for liking and sharing her page. The winner was announced this morning at her Morning Coffee broadcast (Sarah is actually the Energizer Bunny) and I'll be shipping it out to the lucky winner soon. Congratulations!
Curious about the new book? Jump over to her website, Sarah Price Author, and read up on the plot. An Amish adaptation of Jane Austin's North Anger Abby, Sarah introduces a whole new universe of characters. The heroine Catherine, as you may have guessed, is a "maker" who creates macrame art to support her family.
Check out Sarah's new book then scoot over to her FaceBook page for daily "Morning Coffee" live broadcasts. If you're already a Sarah Price fan, won't you please leave a comment below? Thanks!
Macrame Wedding Decor Addition
With the wedding season growing close, I've been working on different macrame ceremony backdrops for my Etsy shop. Pictured above is a large macrame hanging I finished this weekend. The pattern I used is a longer, wider, straight-edged version of "Harmony".
What I like about this hanging is it easily allows for size customization to fit the circumstance. And it transfers readily to home decor. I've placed the macrame hanging above a console table here, but it could just as easily be used as a headboard, above a couch, or as a window covering.
So often, macrame wedding backdrops look like they're basically made for one-time use, to be thrown away after the ceremony. No so with this hanging. I build my pieces out of the highest quality cord available and put a lot of attention into the detail, creating a family heirloom to keep, use, and hand down.
The pattern for this straight "Harmony" is filled with medallions, rosettes, braids and diamonds. These design elements take a lot of time and require straight, tight knotting, but I think it's worth it. If you're using this piece in your wedding ceremony, you certainly want a rich looking tapestry befitting the occasion! Once it transfers to the home, the extra attention to detail and the quality materials will never no out of style.
