Good golly these things are fun. I’ve been playing away with them, while the poor black dog wants only a little finishing, and the cat project harumphs from the corner, wondering why it’s not even on the fabric yet. Don’t we remember we wanted that to be done by Christmas?
My five year old requested a temari for himself. His favorite colors are yellow and rainbow. The result (still in progress) is a masterpiece of subtlety and understatement:
I’m intrigued by the possibility of temari jewelry, so I’ve loaded up on 1/2 inch wooden beads and small styrofoam balls. We’ll see how that works out–getting the measurements accurate on an extremely wee mari might be a challenge. But it sounds like a fun challenge.
