Since the Christmas decorations came down everywhere looks a bit spartan and colourless. This situation needs to be remedied!
So, as soon as I have finished my latest tapestry, I am going to make one of these paper chandeliers. I actually have some tissue paper which has taken up long term residence in my office.
They are called Pajaki and the women of Poland make them to hang in their houses in winter for a bit of colour. Good idea ladies.
