What a huge and complex Temari puzzle. The Temari Challenge mentor group I learn with had a photo with Japanese instructions. The size is what was clear at the start but no real idea on how to proceed, at least for me. Once again 2 layers stitched at the same time, one row of each at a time. Now as I begin a second one putting all the ‘learning’ from the first into play I can see what I missed in the order of the final stitching pathways. I missed some small triangles at the edges of larger triangles that form by weaving under and over previous rows. I hope my 2nd attempt will be the one that engages these additional triangles into the overall design. More to come……..fingers crossed.

Safflower C 10 Ultraviolet Temari

This was a wonderful adaptation of the last design. Jumping from a C 8 grid to a C 10 grid. The way that the continuous designs came together pleases me in every way. Bigger sphere at 51 cm, and smaller thread offer a lot of detail. Maybe it’s the bright flower spots that give me the happy feeling. Every time I sat down to work on this one I could feel that happy portal pop open. The whole medium gives meĀ  an endless stream of pleasure but this particular sphere seems even more joyous. The continuous design of green began with a question. I made an error when I laid out the center support lines for this design and while trying to decide if pulling it out and redoing was the right thing to do I determined that I really liked the spaces inside each center. they became a secondary pattern that would appear in each star center.
