Which used to look like this. [I’ve realised what they remind me of – the rather nice choccy biccies they give you with an Americano in Costa coffee in Haskins - and possibly other Costas as well.]
I know I said I was going to add beads, but when I tried, they didn’t look right. I then struggled to get a thread through the tubes by dangling a needle down and hoping it would drop through. [It didn’t.]
Then I remembered my rouleaux turner – which worked perfectly. Doh.
So I assembled the tubes, and made a tassel and hanging loop, and held it up – and realised it looked a bit empty. The obvious thing is another pearl tassel – but I’ve run out of pearls.
Current ideas are:
- a different, bigger tassel – perhaps in wool, for a contrast of texture.
- another smaller diamond shape in a contrasting material , yet to be decided [i.e. I don’t have a clue what.]
- something like these – or is that a cliché?
Anybody got any better ones?
And that was all I managed, despite having almost a full day to play – or so I thought. By the time I'd been shopping and done some cooking, there wasn’t much time left.
