My creative space is a breeding ground...




I haven't played along with my creative space for a few weeks now and I feel as though I am missing out on all the fun. I am so looking forward to catching up with a few new 'old' friends. Speaking of friends, one of my favourite people in the entire world came for a cup of tea this morning and gave me a packet of origami paper. Needless to say, it was sudden mating season for cranes around here. Now the benches are littered with them and they have even begun to nest in my wool. Hugo is fascinated by origami and has been making curtains (from what I have observed, you fold the paper in half and then twist it a bit) and other interesting things so I guess you could say I am sharing my creative space with him.
For more creative spaces, pop over to Kirsty's.

It's on my wish list to learn origami. I love all the papers you can buy. Thanks for the inspiration. Looks fab!

Michelle said...

How beautiful do they look! Wonderful!

Kylie said...

They look so beautiful Kate! I know this sounds strange because I don't know you but I really missed you! What have you been up to? Your comments are always so special and thoughtful and I actually went looking for you and couldn't find you. So, I'm doing what I should have done months ago and I'm following you now! Oh that sounds very stalker-like, doesn't it? No fear, I'll be good :) K

I loved folding paper cranes when I was a kid. What a lovely way to spend the morning.

I love origami but I just can't do it - so bad at following instructions (yes, I have issues with patterns). My husband is so so good at it and I'm jealous of him and now you! Great space...

Very funny to see your cranes - I have been printing out instructions today to see if I can find some easy ones for a 10 minute training session I have to deliver as part of my course... do you think people can learn in 10 minutes?!

Your absence was noticed... MCS was a whole lot less colourful for a while there.
Beautiful paper. Beautiful thought, a little boy folding with you...

Lauren said...

Hey I missed you! Lovely space. I wish I could inspire the owlets to join me in origami... soon I hope!

Linda said...

So cute! I have a wine bottle full of tiny paper cranes and I love it! :)

I am sorry I am late but I couldn't do any visiting yesterday!
But just like Kylie, I am following from now on too! What a lovely blog! i had to scroll all the way to the end of the page and when I get a spell of time I will read further- I adore...your hexagon blanket and I made a promise to myself to make one too. I have taught myself to crochet but the results are not good enough so I have been reading from the library and I think, I might have to get some instruction come September- Your blog is a delight and very inspiring!
Have a lovely day!

Love your origami figures! Long time ago that I did origami & feel like folding now. How inspiring! :) Happy weekend to you, Kate! :)

I've got a pack of the pretty paper just like that! My sister's bridal shower was Japanese-themed, so I looked up some online instructions and made cranes and flowers and butterflies to place around the room. I saved the leftover paper for other fun ideas.
