I've folded Tomoko Fuse's Naval Shell a few times now using various papers, but I made this one using roller blind fabric. Diagrams are in her wonderful book "Spiral". I'll be teaching this at the BOS Spring Convention in Birmingham 14th-15th March See http://www.britishorigami.info/society/meetings/condata.php
I had great fun in the sun on Sunday making Willow Obelisks with my friends - none of us had done any before, but we all finished in just over 2 hours. I need to leave mine out of the ground for a month or so to stop it rooting as it was freshly cut. I'm going to try making a place mat with the Cornus in my garden when I cut it back soon.
Here's a selection of photos taken by Nigel at the Nottingham Knitting Show. There was a good buzz and quite a few younger visitors. I wish the walls weren't so green and the floor so yellow - trying to see the true colours or yarns and wires was impossible.
My first play from Assia Brill's fantastic book, "Curlique Kinetic Origami" with a random piece of paper and I noticed it went with the clothes I was wearing, so I made another spiralling in the opposite direction and turned them into a pair of earrings!
