At last I have joined the triangles with the beaded tassels, with plenty of frequent breaks and days without any stitching. This image is produced by scanning my work - hence the 'strange' positions of the tassels and the shadow round the edge. Next I need to produce some cord to thread through the loops currently joined with safety pins.

Since Summer School I have been producing triangles for my accessory. These are some of them. The top three show the "right side" - blue cord triangles beaded and attached to the orange/blue "lining" triangles. The lower three show the "lining" side. These were made using two different cords.
The week I am working on bead tassels and cords to connect these triangles together.

We were asked to look at spirals in man made structures. I wanted to display my work in a different way for this module. I had used display books for Module 1, and bound my work for Module 2 using a comb binder. I designed this display stand - it is made of MDF which I have painted turquoise. Each page is suspended on the two side rails. There is one centre rail at the base to give the stand stability. My tassels are displayed on a spiral stand and my buttons and toggles will be in a box. The lid of this box will be my resolved sample.
The stand is made from cardboard tubes, with a wooden base, painted turquoise. The orange top is made of paper, spiralling round into a ball shape. The tassels are hanging on wooden craft sticks, which I trimmed to various lengths, notched, and dyed orange. The sticks spiral up the cardboard tube.
