Origami Yoda Update: We Did It (It, We Did)!!

29 Aug

Progress was slow but steady in the early stages.  As of two weeks ago, we had only hit the halfway mark.  To get us closer to the goal of 1,000, I had kind of resigned myself to folding Yodas at home on my sofa while watching the early rounds of the  U.S. Open.  But it turns out there was no cause for worry, because last night (I wish I knew who submitted it, and at what time) we collected our 1,000th Origami Yoda at the Brooklyn Public Library!  I believe it’s time for a Happy Dance.  Don’t you agree, Yoda?

In case you’re wondering,, here’s what 1,000 Yoda’s look like in their most unassuming form.  Over the summer, I kept them stored in plastic shopping bags, 200 Yodas per bag.

Bless their hearts, the kids are still folding.  My total as of this morning was 1,022, and I estimate I got another 100 today.  I’ll let everyone fold through tomorrow, and then after the holiday weekend, we’ll get the display taped up on the wall.  Keep your eyes peeled for pictures.  And thank you for following along!
