G.I.T.S.

This is the 100th post I have written, but not my 100th post, I have a note saved to work on later. I will do a give-away on my next post, so stay tuned!

My swap partner received her Temari yesterday, and likes it. Here's the one I sent her. (Remember, G.I.T.S. stands for Great International Temari Swap.)

It is a c10 division; the weaving on it reminds me of woven cane seats. There are a couple of mistakes in the weaving, which I very carefully did not photograph, and even more carefully tried to mend with some judicious stitching. The extra thread hanging is a tag I included with the occasion and the date for my swap partner. The swap was to commemorate the Lunar New Year, so the colors were chosen as auspicious colors for that celebration. It is the year of the Ox, but I couldn't think of a way to incorporate that into a Temari.

This is really impressing. Your temari are becoming more elegant and sophisticated. And it's only been, what, two months? Sheesh!
