So I decided to try it for myself, inspired by the tiles top left.
One of the results of the paper folding method is that, with only one fold, you end up with a design which is only symmetrical about one axis [to get a bit mathematical] That means that the design can look slightly odd on its own but usually looks better when repeated. If you rotate the layout round a single point, you can get some interesting secondary patterns. This is a much better snowflake than any I produced yesterday, even if it has only got 4 points.
You will have noticed that there hasn't been a lot of embroidery on this blog for a while. I have been working on some postcards and ATCs for a swap but I can't show you those until they have arrived at their destination. I have also been spending a lot of time sorting out my room after Wensleydale finished his DIY in there - which took a little longer than anticipated, partly because somebody changed her mind.
This is my new paper and paint area - now on the opposite side of the room to the sewing section. [The wonky heater is there, in addition to the very effective radiator, for insomniac nights.]
This is some fairly eclectic storage - the shelves were the last minute addition.
This is the unnaturally tidy sewing alcove. The weird white cat is a cover for the machine. And the photographer is, fortunately, obscured by the flash ...
