Tassel for Sue

My friend has a key stuck in a lock. It will turn but won't come out. She asked me to make a dangly something to hang from the naughty key. Sue already has a woven copper piece made for her birthday a couple of years ago, so I decided to incorporate copper into the tassel.

I strung the beads onto beading thread and used needle weaving to make the loop. Time will tell whether it is strong enough to withstand handling. I will report back if it falls apart.

I delivered presents to my in-laws yesterday. Today I got a phone call telling me that they have opened them. Who needs kids when you have parents like these? Anyway they like their stuff, I think their favorite gift was the clockwork racing snails. They are already bickering over who gets to eat the caramel nougat bars:) Wonderful people are buying me a sink to put into my new workshop for christmas.

I've been tagged

I have been tagged by Diane at
This is quite exiting, I have been reading other blogs and wondered if anyone would like me enough to tag me. It's a bit like being picked for a team at school. Yippee.

I am not sure there are 7 interesting things about me, but here goes...

1. When I was 7 I won the nobbly knee contest at junior school.
2. I was in the school choir and stood in the front row - but I was asked to mime.
3. I was banned from the art studios at school when I was 12.
4. I believe Robbie Williams is the most phwaa man alive.
5. I met two women on-line and travelled across the atlantic on my own to meet them, and neither of them were mad axe killers.
6. When I have a beading project which needs finishing, I have the outrageous desire to paint something but when I need to paint I just have to stitch, etc etc
7. For every project I complete, at least 7 go into the bin.

Now I have to find seven people to tag, here goes...

I would like to tag the following people because they have excellent blogs...
