Here's the temari I've been working on since last Thursday. I think it turned out quite good; but I will have to get the evaluation on it to be sure. I will probably also have to work at getting a better picture.
I'm also wondering if I should do some pine needle stitching in the triangles, in a darker green. A gold metallic would be another possibility, or the squares could be outlined with gold.
All these possibilities are why I said "maybe" in the title.
I want to do all four of the level 1 temari in this color scheme. I'm planning my mitsubane (tri-wing) now. I can already feel my stitching improving just from this one temari. By the time I get all 8 finished (for levels 1 and 2) I hope to see all kinds of improvement.
