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.


  1. That's really quite cool!! I love how you made that tassel and it looks quite classy on the bag. Lovely work.

  2. Wow that tassel is wonderful. You are so talented:)

  3. Este pingente para o acabamento ficou ótimo! Caimento perfeito!
    Um abraço!

    This pendant to finish was great! Perfect fit!

  4. Just gorgeous Lin. What an elegant tassel , perfect for such a pretty bag , great finish !

  5. How pretty... it may be small but it certainly doesn't look easy... so much detail in there .. just beautiful...

  6. Wow! that tassle is stunning as is the bag. Such a talented lady you are Lin X:)

  7. Gorgeous tassel and so perfect for that lovely bag. I do admire your embroidery, just beautiful.

  8. wow Lin,
    your embroidery onthe little bag looks amazing and theat beaded tassel is gorgeous.
    love the dragon fly!

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

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