Have you ever tried origami?

Many years ago I learnt how to fold origami cranes. Everyone I knew made at least one and we made a rainbow of hanging cranes - kind of like this one, but with the droops of cranes organised by colour.

I found out today this is called a Senbazuru - a group of 1000 origami paper cranes held together by strings. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds 1000 origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury.

So I've decided to rekindle my love of origami and make myself a Senbazuru. Progress so far: One crane down, 999 to go.

Wish me luck.
