Speaking of wood beads, they were often used for eyes when making Macramé Owls, a very popular pastime in the 1970s. Our original 1970s family Owl is pictured below.
And would you believe I found the Macramé Owl Sanctuary.
The following is a quote from the website . . .
This organisation is dedicated to saving, rehabilitating and reviving the Macramé Owl.
The Macramé Owl is a rare species that is dreadfully declining in numbers worldwide.
This heartbreaking situation is partly due to the difficulty in finding jute at local craft shops. It is further exacerbated by a lack of a sense of humour in humans for the sake of Seriousity.
and now for the pretty little things . . .
