Is what I seem to have been doing lately - small, easy projects, a bit here and a bit there. I have three larger projects that seem to be hanging on a bit so I am aiming to get them all finished off this week.

First up was this embroidered bag which I almost finished earlier this year.

I had decided that it needed a tassel on the bottom so I ordered some thread and then it got forgotten.

Anyway, last week, out came these delicious threads

and with the addition of some beads from my stash, made this tassel.

Which I have now added to the bag.

Great. One finish for the week and it looks good hanging from the bottom of my new postcard hangar too.

Hope you manage a finish or two this week.

Lin that tassel is perfect to finish your bag off - how about a tassel tutorial, I'd love to learn how to make one with beads on it!

Hello Lin,

Oh I like how you fiddled with the bag, the tassel is so lovely, the chosen threads look so soft. I too noticed the Dragonfly on your bag.

Happy days.

Your bag is lovely. The beading on the tassel is a terrific detail. i like the dragon fly that you added on the bag. It will look great on your spring coloured crazy quilt block that I saw in an earlier post.

Oh the time it must have taken to make the tassel! What a work of art!
