IMG_2285Springs pink, ochre and aqua weaving efforts came together well here. At 32 centers, 6.75” diameter, 56.5cm. circumference, her presence shines through. C 10 mark in the wide banded pentagonal grid is dominant. The triangles weave under, over and between the band bodies. A first time for me in splitting the primary bands rather than using a laid space to do so. It was inspired by Temari SJ11 from the Temari Kai pattern base. ┬áThose 5+3 figure combinations that the C 10 mark provides seem to be an infinite source of design possibilities. The use of an ombre Nordic Gold metallic marking thread really made a wonderful sparkle as the light dances over the surface. It game me more experience using double strand #5 as well. Oh yes always learning and practicing those basic skills, using them on new and more ambitious projects. Thank you to all the Temari guides and gods for their assistance in every stitch taken.
