A Flock of Cranes

Counting a thousand cranes is an arduous business.  To aid in this process I have made a visual aid so that I don't have to keep counting over and over.  Although it does look like I might have to get a bigger jar!
I'd like to report that making the cranes is surprisingly therapeutic!


  1. Yikes! I have alot of trouble with counting when there are many things and I add to them. I have to split them up into lots of 10, 20 or 50...and keep them seperate.

  2. Interesting idea! What is the relationship between the Cranes and ALAW? The strip of card shown, does this have letters on it? Excuse my curiosity! Best wishes, Sue

  3. Yes Sue, I do understand how confusing this could be out of context. :) My previous posts referred to how the Japanese origami crane is a symbol of peace and so I thought that it would be nice to incorporate them into my peace alphabet. One of the traditions is that if you make 1000 cranes then you are entitled to a wish. The strip of card is showing markers for 100, 150, 200 etc up to 1000. I'm hoping that I get to the 1000!

    1. Thanks for enlightening me! In my haste to communicate with you, I should have thought to check earlier posts - thanks again, Sue.

  4. No problem. I could easily see why you would think that - it did seem to come out of the blue - with no letters!

  5. Happy folding Lyndell - it is a lovely story and a great link to peace.


Thank you for taking the time to comment - it's always great to hear from folk.
