Drawers filled with paper are waiting

… and finally – after many many adventures in crocheting, sewing and knitting – I’m in the mood for making file folders again. And I think I never showed you the drawer, since I cleaned it and ordered all my papers several months ago.

It’s been coming back slowly. Last week I picked up tons of cardboard I had cut at Buchbinderei Schäfer. Then Fabienne surprised me with this amazing handmarbled blue paper, when we made sushi together on sunday. And yesterday I happened to walk by Balloni to find some more beautiful paper. And tonight? My fingers are itching again…

An afternoon of modulor origami

Today I was very honored to be invited by Hans-Werner Guth to join him and some more origami enthusiasts from around Cologne to spend an afternoon in the sun, folding modular origami and eating yummie cake. I have never really done origami before and – as always – I picked one of the most difficult models to start with – the one you see on top. Isn’t it amazingly beautiful? I have to ask about the name again.

The folding of the parts was actually pretty easy, but the assembling is really quiet tricky. I got about half of it done – yay. I will try to do the rest at home – will see how that works… And I’m definitely looking forward to the next "Faltnachmittag"…
