Millions of Tassels!
That's Tessie, singing a happy tune this morning.
Being a gypsy tent, it must have tassels everywhere....Tessie said so. So it must be true.
When April was little, I found these rolls of un-spun rayon at Pic'n'Save....That turned into MacFrugle's...Then to Big Lots....As it went through the different phases, it lost a lot of it's charm and a lot of the unusual products that it used to carry.
This stuff was seventy nine cents a spool at the time. I found a tag on the red spool. At the time, I was hesitant to buy all of the colors. I wasn't sure what I would do with it. Now I am so glad that I did. And I wish that they had had a few more colors. I got white, black and six colors. It will take another hundred and forty nine years to use it all, but I am trying.
After she got a length of crocheted chain done, I took over and glued it on top of the thread lines in the bamboo blinds for the side roof. The end of these will hang down over the side of the building and the tassels will then be attached to the end of each braid.
This morning I found three more fat quarters that we can use in the tent drapes. It's not going to be just these three...I have lots of other fabrics picked out of the stash...
Please don't ask how the workroom cleaning is coming along....I don't wish to talk about it. It seemed to slip my mind, just a little bit after I reported on it yesterday. That's all I am saying on the subject...other than....I can't find my pin board to do the drapes... This is not good at all.
See you tomorrow.
