When not making cranes, I am making flowers. Practice makes perfect, and I certainly have practiced. I'm not near perfection, but I can make a pretty good blossom if I do say so myself.
After I felt I had conquered cranes and flowers, I opened my book on bugs, which is what I want to do eventually. I succeeded in getting to step number eight out of 108. After trying for an hour and a half to figure out number nine, I went to bed. I spent the next two hours involuntarily visualizing the fold and trying to understand it. I couldn't do it and finally fell asleep. When I got up I closed the book.
