Toward the end on Sunday, we were trying to close down (never happens on time) and dissuade people from waiting only to be disappointed, thinking we were going to teach the next wave. So I was folding some tulips to just give away for those who got there too late to fold it themselves. I had finished a tulip model and there was a boy and a girl waiting to receive one and we couldn't determine who was in line for it, first. So I asked them, "Ladies first? Or gentlemen?" The little girl instantly snapped back, "Ladies first!" That elicited a round of laughter from the grown-ups.
The boy, to his credit, accepted receiving one after the young girl got hers first.

I first folded this model from CP over 4 years ago, always meaning to do it again out of nice paper.
While figuring out models to teach at the Matsuri workshop a couple of weekends ago, Patricia Grodner brought up the Self-Folded Man.
Well, since the time that I had folded, Alexander Kurth has since come out with a tutorial. So while I was in my hotel room at 2 in the AM, having just arrived 2 hours earlier, I decided to look at the video and start folding one.
A couple of days ago, I went back and finished the model; pretty much did my final shaping on it yesterday.

The first Sunday fell on the first.
I brought along with me, the two living legends, Yami and Joe. We also had a special guest, Rosemary Browne visiting from Canada.

I also had a family bring their son Matthew, who's into magic and subsequently has gotten interested in paperfolding. I coach his little sister in gymnastics.
