tradition, fun and inspiration

for 2 weeks i had the most wonderful time with my dear friend yoshiko and her daughter rokko who came here to escape from the earthquake aftermath of a very scary japan.  we went and did everything we possibly could in such a short time. i am exhausted and filled with inspiration.  can't wait to try out some of the cute hello kitty origami from this book (above)!

The origami looks fun! Post your finished product-unless you made the cranes?

hi marley, i made the cranes.
it's actually my first try at the traditional crane. i'd been avoiding it because i wanted to stay away from traditional...but after the earthquake my friend yoshiko showed me how to make the cranes=
1000 for good luck
best wishes for japan's healing/recovery they will hang in my sister's bookstore window display at coastside books in halfmoon bay
