this project as at the time I had only just put out the recycling. I guess I just wanted to try something different. I remember weaving at school with strips of coloured paper or flax, and my Grandma teaching me to make baskets with cane but haven't done anything since. So I waited for the next copy of North Shore Times to arrive then got to work folding paper into strips. I probably could have done a better job but as always I was in a hurry to get it finished so I could see the finished product - one reason I don't enjoy sewing up quilts.
Anyway it's a good little afternoon project to do with the kids these holidays and any type of paper will work, even the pile of magazines Granny sent over.
