In the process, I have discovered a new obsession: origami. I frequently have lunch at the Chinese buffet near my office, and one of the ladies who works there makes and displays incredibly intricate origami creations, and they inspired me to give it a shot. Here are my VERY beginner-level creations.
Origami "bows" . . .
and stars . . .
that convert to "ninja stars".
I've also made paper-pieced Santas, folded fabric Christmas trees . . .
and a Charlie Brown tree skirt.
Today we are at Mitch's for a belated Thanksgiving celebration. I'm not a fan of Black Friday shopping, but we did make a couple stops late in the day, after the crowds had thinned, and purchased a couple gifts. We'll return home tomorrow and, hopefully, l'll find time to finish making Christmas gifts and still meet you here for a chat.
How are your Christmas preparations going?
