Counting Cranes

So it's been a while since I've updated you all on my 1000 paper crane making progress.  While relaxing in the late afternoon air I decided to string up  another round of cranes that had been collecting in a bag in the corner.  I was able to thread 4 strings of 40 cranes with 28 left over until next time I get around to stringing.  So adding today's total of 188 cranes to my previous 440 strung cranes my official count is 628!

Today's 188!

It's also been a while since I've updated on Crane Rule #1 - the "I can't date until I'm done" rule.  So last time I mentioned Rule #1 here, I said that it "may or may not have been stretched".  Well, it has been stretched.  I've done everything in my power to throw Rule #1 out the window and yet I still have only had mild success obliterating my self imposed dating rule.  I have dated since beginning this project, quickly and more long term, unrealistically and more seriously.  But somehow, the universe is keeping my from my usual "we have gone on a few dates and now you are my boyfriend" ways.  Or at least I like to think it is the mysterious and unusual ways of the universe trying to keep me to Rule #1 and not the fact that I am terrible at dating and have unrealistic expectations that can never be met and am therefore often crabby.


NOTE:  Love my little friend in the pic?  He was created by Lori Brown!  I love my little guy and want more!
