Currently, the clouds have returned and that "30% chance" is looking more likely. I'm hoping the rain/snow holds off totally or simply passes us by all together.

Other than that, we returned home and I have been experimenting with some versions of Origami Koi.
First I wanted to see if I could create scales without actually folding the paper. Folded scales quickly begin to look like crap if there are too many layers of the thicker paper.
I liked how things looked...so I tried adding a second layer of scales. I still had to figure out where the folds went without messing with the parts of the fish that do not have scales.
Third attempt...with larger paper this time. (20") I added too many folds this time. But it each attempt seems to look a little better.
|I like this one. Time to refine it and repeat.|
And then we begin our plan for the Big Boston. Cheryl is beginning to get scared a little. Mostly on the travel situation. We have never taken a train before, so it will be an adventure and a nail-biter at the same time. I can't wait!
