If At First You Don't Succeed

Micro macrame leaves and vine by Sherri Stokey.

I've been messing around for some time now, trying to come up with a vine design.  My first attempts were not pretty.

Experimenting with new designs in micro macrame.

Yes, I know, they weren't green, either, but that's beside the point.  I almost had something a couple of times.  I was so close, but it just wasn't right.  And there were more attempts I didn't stop to photograph.  The stench of failure was in the air.  But today, I took another stab at it:

Micro macrame experimentation.

It may not look like much, but after I picked out the good bits, I finally hit on a design I like!  And not only that, but I came up with a couple other ideas I will have to experiment with later.  For now, I'm going to revel.

Leafy vine micro macrame bracelet design with lucite flower dangle.

I shall rejoice in my triumph and I shall vine.  It takes so little to make me happy!

  1. I know that failure stench all too well. I have beads that I don't really use often because they've become failure beads
