I didn't start my moderate regimen yesterday. I know, it was the very first day in 2009, but it was also still the holidays, so I gave myself a break. Today, well, today, I begin. Everything...in moderation. And that means the internet too.
I've been working on several tassels and finally finished a few I think I'm happy enough with to post on Etsy. If I do post these, I'll be stretching it out over the next couple of days and working on a fourth that's almost complete.
It takes me a loong time to do tassels. Felting, not so much, but I'm waiting for supplies for that. So it's either tassels or pillows, both of which can be time-consuming.
I really like this first one, but I started with a purchased tassel, something I got at a sidewalk sale in Austin very inexpensively.
This is one I did at my sister's behest. My whimsical tassel now listed on Etsy has gotten a goodly number of views--no purchases, just views--so she thought I should try a MacKenzie-Childs approach. Didn't quite make it, but it lead me in a definite direction.
This last is my attempt at a Valentine tassel. I'm not sure I'm there yet either. May do another differently.
Have a great day!
