The Crane Mobile



It's a rainy, dismal day so I decided to follow through with my origami project. I have planned on making a mobile out of the many cranes I made. I even bought some metal rings to hang them from. As usual, though, nothing goes as smoothly as one would like. Yesterday I put thread in all the cranes and hung them over the back of a chair. I was almost done when I mistakenly hit one of the cranes with my elbow. It sent them all spinning, and if you have ever made or owned a mobile, you can imagine what happened. The thread became hopelessly tangled. I tried for what seemed like an hour to detangle the thread, but it was implssible. I had to cut the cranes loose and start again.

This morning I tackled the project again. My attempts to tie the thread over the ring were disasterous, with more tangling and more cutting. Neither could I figure out a way to hang the ring that didn't look ridiculous. Finally I hit upon the idea of hanging the cranes individually from the chain on my swag lamp. I still had to tie knots in the thread and then attach them to the chain with little pieces of picture hanging wire. Eventually the result was as good as I was prepared to accept.

I sometimes question the way I spend my time.

I think it was worth the effort, the cranes look good, and you could add some other birds or flying animals too. I am sure it will come much easier next time.
