There are times...

... when everything falls in the right place, and there are times when they just don't. I have a few unfinished projects to prove the latter. Finishing the embellishment of my globe ornament went just fine, I was quite happy with the result, but the mounting didn't go as I have imagined. It can be saved, I have figured out a way to do that and even started finishing it up, but by then I got so frustrated that I needed a quick, rewarding project to lift my spirit a bit.


So I put the ornament away, not too far, just on the corner of my table (it will only take one or two more hours to get it done, just not today) and pulled out my box with silk ribbons and a piece of silk dupioni - got to love both of them - to make this cute little pendant:



I do feel a whole lot better already. Silk is just as good as chocolate :) Maybe even better. But, definitely, at least just as good!

You did exactly the right thing. When things do not go as we like and it becomes a struggle I have found that putting the project to the side for another time is the best to do. Somehow when I pick it up again I have better success and patience.
I love the pendant, I have never seen those metal backings before. The silk ribbon work is, as always true of your work, beautiful!
