This is my 92 face temari finished. I am very pleased by how it turned out. I ended up using a pink for the final petal color, and leaving the extra hexagons blank. It took 6 days of stitching to finish this one!
I really like how there is a little glint of gold in the center of each petal. The marking is not at all even, but it's close enough for me. I want to do this same pattern in the next step up, starting with 42 poles, and tripling those to 122. There will be more blank hexagons, so maybe I can stitch some leaves on that one.
I'm almost done with my next swap Temari, but I ran out of white pearl cotton last night. I need a yard! After I finish that one, I can work on the 2 mystery balls that came in my lesson (words explaining the pattern, but no pictures or diagrams).
To do, after I finish those, our group ran across pictures of viruses on line. My first thought was "Temari Balls!" We are talking about working some of them up, and communicating with the authors of the site, to see if they are interested in a collaboration. It reminds me of the crocheted reef that was on display in Chicago last year.
