Beading and Tassel-Making

As you may recall, my birthday was earlier this month. One of the gifts I was given included a "project" - making a tassel necklace from DD Erin. I moved the box around from spot to spot over the course of about 10 days, and finally brought it up to my sewing room, where I again moved it around a few times. Seems it was always in the way.

Finally, this weekend I decided to make a necklace, doggone it. Then I could put the box away.







What a fun little project. I really enjoyed making the necklace, although I did feel "all thumbs" through the process. Those beads are so tiny! And then making that tassel - who knew it involved so many steps?! I have enough materials left that I can make two more, so I suppose each daughter will get one at some point. They both said they wouldn't mind a bit. *grin*

So, yes, in the midst of finishing my Elizabeth quilt, I stopped everything and made this tassel necklace. Typical me. But I did get myself focused back to Elizabeth, finished it, and will share the big reveal in tomorrow's post. If you have Instagram, I have already shared it there.

Baiting you, I know. But do come back for a look - it's a beauty!

Happy Quilting (and beading), Friends!

Beautiful kit, but those seed beads are so tiny! They remind me of my cross stitch projects - dropped more than I attached ☺. Purl Soho is one of my favorite crafty stores. I'm afraid if I start any of their yarn projects I'll be hooked on another diversion. Everything is so yummy. Enjoy making your next necklaces.
