I'm imagining all those pretty shapes hanging all over your home!

And as my verification word says, they'd be "flashi"! :)

Brittany, thanks for the polyhedron link!

KimOh, I've seen that lamp and I'm delighted. Thank you to you, too, because I would never find out where my fabric goes if it weren't for you guys who send me links.

Making this could be a bit of fun for me and my little girl. But I would have to go for the coloured ones. White looks a little plain.
