The big reveal (or done, done, done) - nuntium trecesimum sextum

I've finished!  Wahoo!

Here it is:
 What could it be?  Well, of course it's a tatted beaded bag for my straw!  About two years ago, I swore off plastic straws (environmental reasons) but the problem was that I LOVE straws, always have.  I loved them as a kid- back when they were made of paper. I made the conversion to plastic with the rest of the world.  I know it won't change everything but this could be a small thing I can do.  A friend showed me her metal straw but I couldn't wrap my brain around drinking through metal.  But then...

then....

I found glass straws!  They are made of pyrex and super tough. But just carrying it in my purse loose was too much.  To the rescue Marie's beaded bag which I spotted on Frivole's blog.

I had to modify it a bit (not my forte) and undo several inches (more than once) but finally today- success!
