Fall colors on a Temari

Here's the temari I made with fall colors this week. It is a new kind of fiber, a silk called Grandeur by Rainbow Gallery. I like the colors, but I wish I had used a darker brown mari so the colors would show themselves more lively.

Grandeur is a silk pearl. It is wound tighter than DMC pearl, and so tends to tangle as it goes through the mari. This temari looks better in person than in the picture. The picture emphasizes the distance between the stitching, showing the background color. Looking at it in person you do not notice the gaps as much.


I'm also working on writing the instructions for this temari, for my level 2 JTA submission. That's coming along well, but this temari will have to be re-done.
