Sorry, for the lack of posts these days. But like many of you I have been too distracted by the situation in Japan.
While all my thoughts go to Japan and its people, the legend and meaning of origami cranes came to my mind. As far as I know those who are able to fold 1,000 are granted a wish by a crane.
I can only begin with this very first one to show, at least, my deepest solidarity to the Japanese people.

I have made a step by step photo instruction for this fabric crane, which you can enlarge by clicking on the collage. It can be easily done with a few hand stitches.
If you would like to make one, too, it would be nice, if you could send me a photo of your finished crane. I am thinking about uploading them onto my blog as some sign of worldwide mental encouragement for Japan.
Please send them to:
