Trying new techniques and new ideas can be exciting and frustrating all in the same day. Case in point? My crochet cabochon pendants! The thread covers up way too much of the stone which is not my desired result. So I go back to the drawing board and tweak, try again, and find what works. Failure is required in order to succeed. Reimagining is usually the key to moving beyond failure, which takes time and effort (don’t forget a healthy dose of patience!). The entire process is useful and insight can be gained along each step. Do you have a crafting hurdle you overcame, only to make your project better than you originally envisioned it?
