Christmas star

Origami starChristmas Eve and I’m too busy trying to finish the gansey cowl I’m knitting as a present to write a long post.  Suffice to say, I’ve been inspired by the season to make my first origami creation since I was seven or eight and used to rush home from school to watch Robert Harbin’s TV programme – in black and white.  Those were the days.

I found the instructions on the Homemade Gifts Made Easy website, which has lots of other crafting ideas too.  These stars would make great Christmas bunting, and that was my plan, but I have to confess that I struggled so much with the first one that I lost all enthusiasm for making any more.

I’ve also been experimenting with stick-on LED tape, which doubles as fairy lights at this time of year.  More next time.

Until then, a very Merry Christmas to all my readers.

About yorkshirecrafter

I live and work in West Yorkshire.  I've always enjoyed crafts of all types, from woodwork to lace-making.  I also enjoy anything mathematical, which makes knitting a favourite pastime, especially complicated designs.  I've been advising businesses and industry on environmental matters for 30 years and also have an interest in green living, especially where it saves me money. I live with my husband and our Maine Coon in a 100-year-old cottage that constantly needs something doing to it.  Fortunately, I enjoy DIY too.
