So a pub was picked, and cider was bought. All origami lessons should involve cider. Soon there was a mountain of cranes, and Jess picked 6 to make into a decoration.
Our friend George turned up and asked if he could take some of the remaining cranes to turn into a mobile for his friend's baby, also called George. So 10 cranes are now being crafted into a lovely mobile.

Poor cafe kino. Every time I go there (which is fairly regularly), I leave a trail of cranes. Two consecutive days of working in there for a few hours resulted in 6 cranes. 4 were left for the next visitors, one was given to a friend who I bumped into in there, and the final one was given to one of the chefs after she asked me about them. Cranes cranes everywhere...
My parents came down to visit at the weekend. Some of the first cranes I ever made (before starting this project) were in January of this year. My mum wasn't well, and was recovering in hospital after an operation. From previous experience I knew the hospital didn't let you take in flowers (even fake ones) and so I made some cranes on the train, using scrap paper from my masters thesis (that I was proof reading at the time). My mum loved them, taking them home with her when she got out of hospital.
And so when they visited, whilst having coffee, I made them each one.
And then I made a few extra to hide in the flowers on the table...
