The thing about Iris Folding for me is how calming it is. It reminds me quilting in a way. I have never even quilted myself. Quilting used to be a way to socialize with friends and family. It was kind of a Girls Night Out. Well, Iris Folding is like that for me.
I join a group of friends almost every week and we do Iris Folding. There are usually six of us. We have a wonderful time selecting just the right papers, oooooowing and aaaaeing over each other's choices, talking, laughing and eating. It is a ball. I feel serene when I am Iris Folding.
It brings me great joy and that is why I decided to share it with my friends at the Bounty thread. Sure enough quite a few friends started doing it too. And so the links of friendship keep growing.
