I enjoy doing origami, but it is getting harder and harder to do. I have adapted some techniques to enable me to keep going with this hobby. For example, I use a dark marker to draw the crease lines and center point on the back origami paper. Use high contrast background against the origami paper. One of the best tool is a shallow squared cardboard box lid. To align the opposite edge or the opposite corner of the origami paper, I just put the paper flat against the inside corner of the cardboard lip and then fold the paper against the corner or the edge. I am also able to fold some origami by feel with a design visualized in my head. Following are few origami I done recently, and I plan to add more later.

Retriever - made with 3 sheets of paper. Since most guide dogs are Lab
Retriever, I made an origami Lab Retriever for everyone
in our guide dog training class.
Lobster. Made with one paper, about 4 inches long. I believe this is my original design.
Fish Boat - I think this is my original design also. It has an appearance of a fish crossed with a boat.
Godzilla. Made with one paper about 3 inches tall.
Big Bird. Made with one piece of 8.5 x11 inches paper. The paper tension at the back of the beak would keep the beak open, squeeze the top and bottom to snap close the beak with a snap sound.
