Swirl Temari

This is a picture of a swirl temari. Thanks to some excellent instruction, I was able to stitch it very nicely on my first try. There's just a little too much space between the divisions. If you follow the longest thread on each section, you can see the hexagon and diamond divisions that form the basis of the design. It was a lot of fun to stitch.


C was very concerned that there were white spaces left. (You stitch the hexagons, and then the diamonds, and the diamonds stick out like a sore thumb before getting covered.) She was very pleased when they got covered up, and even helped pull the needle through on several stitches.

Oh, my! This is a wonderful design! It's very striking, and I'm so impressed that this was your first time with this pattern. What a beautifully complex design!
