Melisande brightens the day with a pile of new tessellations!

Friday, August 26, 2005
I was overjoyed this morning to receive an email from Melisande sharing a bunch of new tessellations she has done. I really like the model (last photo) that has tiny little sampans folded from extra edge flaps! it's just wonderful. I'm motivated to try some of that myself now!

the two whole new pages! are here:

Gila folded this up- it's a great triangular tessellation. She'd been folding the square waterbomb tessellation earlier, and I guess this was the next one for her to try out!
