I am Pegasus, my name means “horse”: I have had this “must try someday” pile for ages, thought I would give it a go. The fold sequence is tricky and that was not helped but the fact that the square I started with was not .. actually … square.
Pressed for time, I folded a model I had meant to fold a month ago: This is Oriol Esteve’s “Nosy Cat” – a lovely little cat that in my first fold looks more like a kitten.
Scrumbling through my “must fold list” I came across a curious hand-drawn diagram set from Spain and decided to give it a whirl: After much torturing (I started with a 35cm square) the result is a rather lovely goat.

Last weekend I mowed the lawn – that is not so much a revelation as a statement of fact – I enjoy mowing, always have. I do not, however, enjoy the “presents” that dog owners allow their pets to leave on my lawn: I recognise that part of the pleasure of owning a dog is […]
