Having pondered the many doves I folded last night, I decided I liked the green starry version (paired with red ink, once I get a chance to go to Hobbycraft when half the North East isn’t in there) the best, so I got to work this afternoon and this was the end result..
The only problem is, that’s all the paper I had in that pattern used up. So far, the only other origami paper I’ve seen has been either one colour or very busy patterns, so my task now is to try and find something similar.
Today I have also cast on the final part of a knitting project I could – and should – have finished months ago. I also finally met the lovely Chrissy of Spoilt Pig fame – frankly the only woman you need for all your resin needs! I’d urge everyone to check out her shop, but by all accounts she had such a corking day at the Airyhall Craft Bazaar it might be a bit sparse just now.
However, before I did any of those things, I went here…
Now, I’ll admit this is taking things off in a completely different direction, but it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while, so today I decided to go along and see what a meeting was all about. Mostly I just got frustrated at my complete inability to empty my head and stop my crazy train of thought from rattling off at a hundred miles an hour. Only one person spoke today, but it addressed exactly that subject and provoked a pretty strong emotional reaction in me. I’ve got a few booklets home to read and I plan to go along to a few more meetings. I might talk about that a bit more here, or I might take it to LJ – I don’t know.
