Interwoven bands

 
I have been working on this ball lately, a bit slow as everyday life is keeping me busy. I have it pictured with a ball I made in 2009 I think it shows how much more I have learned since those early days. There is even more to learn with the art of temari, so hopefully in 3 years time I will have more to show. I will be adding stars to this new one and update my progress soon.


 
I decided to take pictures of several together

New temari and nature's temari

We moved home, and are beginning to settle in. I started on some new temari and had the opportunity to photograph them today. It is my favourite season and the leaves are everywhere. We also have squirls and many birds visiting the garden. 













And nature produces its own temari :) I had these photos taken in April in Greece, on the very beach in Marathon, where the Persians landed to attack Athens in 490BC . I was so amazed to find these perfect natural temari balls lying on the shore front and wanted to share.

Barb Seuss's class


Finally finished the ball that was taught by Barb
Barb is such a naturally gifted teacher that she helps anyone figure out the wonderful puzzles of temari divisions and patterns, even those afraid of math :)

I cant wait to try new things with the 32 centers


This is the first largest ball I have made, a 49 cm giant,lol!


Playing around and made this purple flower.

Pattern by Barb for this sunflower
