Nice work Colleen...I bead too. I like to make bracelets, necklaces and earings! Your beads are a little bit smaller than these old eyes and fingers want to master, but we are both artists! I look forward to meeting you in chat!

Thanks Galamom! This was the first tassel (and only one so far) that I've attempted. Glad you like it. The recipient loved it in the ornament exchange. I'll be trying to size down some of my other pictures so hopefully you'll get to see some more of my work soon.

Thank you Wordybirdy! I like to make what you do too as well as bookmarks. Have you uploaded any pictures of your projects? I always enjoy seeing others works.

Those little beads for the tassel were definitely a challenge on the eyes but it was worth the effort I think. Hope to meet you in chat sometime soon too :)

Thanks Kezza! I'll have to check out the photos to see what others are crafting here. Hope to get some smaller pictures soon so you all can see what I've done.

Thanks very much Peachey. It's definitely something I love doing and sharing with others. I can't take credit for the photography though. The picture was done by the lady who was doing the ornament exchange. She did and always does a marvelous job of setting off the the ornaments that are sent each year. Those tassels would definitely look terrific covering a tree, wouldn't they? I'll have to think about doing more for sale this year ;)
