Kirigami and TIAS 2017, Days 1-3

Happy New Year!  I have lots of things to share with you, and I will start with two ongoing projects.

At the beginning of this year, I purchased a page-a-day style calendar of Kirigami designs.

I have enjoyed folding and cutting out the various motifs.  Below are a few that I have made so far.  I hope to have many other pretty Kirigami as the year goes on. :)

I have also started tatting Jane Eborall's "Tat It and See" project for this year.  The length of the project and the outcome are both a mystery!

Part of the fun is learning new techniques and another part is trying to guess what we are tatting.

On Day 1, it honestly could have been anything!

On Day 2, I thought perhaps it was the beginning of a snowflake.

On Day 3, I was thinking that it is the start of a very fine vase.
(The painting is Flowers in a Vase by Odilon Redon.)

But my husband says it is the Taj Mahal!

'Til next time,

  1. I love your kitigami ! It was such fun to do as kids. And glue coloured cellophane paper behind to give a kaleidoscope glass window effect.
    Your TIAS displays are impressive on the artwork :-)
