|Alex helped Hisako on these- she LOVES turtles!|
Marti was out of country in Japan for a puzzle convention last month (International Puzzle Party?); so Alex Lam- Mr. Origami- did not get the grand tour of Marti's house at the August meeting (his first visit). This time, he did.
Marti had to ship her puzzles, which will be a while yet to arrive; and given that next month is PCOC, it probably won't be until November when we will be able to play with her new puzzles.
Alex, Hisako, Pam, and I frustrated ourselves over "after hours" puzzle-solving, staying another 2 hours past the end of the origami meeting.
Alex was pretty good at solving some of these things:

You can find solutions online to some of these puzzles; but it's like reading a movie spoiler or learning the trade secrets of magic- kind of ruins the mystery and fun.
