Tassel Making

Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is having a giveaway in conjunction with Angela at Tassel House.
I love the beautiful Tassels that Angela creates, they are filled with such whimsy.  Stop over and sign up for this fabulous giveaway. Tassel House Giveaway  Here are a couple of examples of Angela's work, I'm such a sucker for bunnies, aren't these just too cute?


Speaking of tassels....have you ever made any?  I'm always so inspired when I see a beautiful tassel.  I have several in my home but none that I've ever created.  I have a basement filled with good intentions and great supplies but as to date not one tassel has seen the light of day from all those bags of trims.  I study the different tutorials that I've found on the net, go out and gather supplies and then.....nothing.  I mean not even one attempt.


I wish I could say that this is the only project that I have aging in my craft room but the truth is I could probably open a small craft store with what is down there.  I guess I should have made a New Year's resolution to finish/start some of these projects.  Do you suffer from this craft project good intension syndrome?

Well, at least you have the supplies in the basement...I've never gotten past thinking about it. Thank you for sharing these darling tassels and for stopping by for a visit. Cherry Kay

Yes, indeed I have made tassels.. and they are so much fun. Once you start, it's hard to stop! Good luck on the procrastination! I am also afflicted. Thanks for coming by and leaving your very kind comments.

Yes, yes, yes. I sometimes spend more time stewing about a project that it would take to actually do it.
I have a couple of Angela's tassels in my home. I also have the supplies, watched the tutorials and thought I could do that.
Maybe we should have a party call "Shake Your Tassel".
Everybody make a tassel and post it on the party. What do you think. That's the only way I will ever finish one.
Hugs, Ginger

I see something I would like to make, get all excited, rush out and buy the materials and there they sit. I need to stop procrastinating and get busy. Thanks for the sweet comment and birthday wish you left me. I really appreciate your visits and I love hearing from you.
Thank you!
