Ta Da! 100th Temari!

Here it is! I am very pleased by how this one turned out. It is a c10 (combination 10) division with 5 pentagons interlocked around each of the 12 centers. You divide each short diagonal in thirds to get your spacing.

Each center has a small orange pentagon, the largest in each series is black, and the three middle ones are stitched in different combinations of dark blue, yellow, green, violet, and lavender. When you list the colors it doesn't sound like it should work, but I copied a temari from Cosmo 6 (page 1), and this turned out very close. If I did it again, I would try to work on a larger mari so there was a little more negative space. The design looks just a little crowded.


I love doing the weaving. There is a mistake on this ball, but I don't think I could find it, even if I went looking (and I know where to look). I did have to take out one set of yellow pentagons because of a mistake in weaving, and I changed the color of one set of pentagons after I thought I was done, but other than that this was very carefree to stitch.

As I mentioned before, this temari is up for grabs. You do not need to post again if you already indicated your interest, but if you have not, leave a comment (with a way for me to get in touch with you). C will pick a name during the evening on Thursday, so the last comment to be counted will be at 4 PM on Thursday. I will post the winner on Friday. Good luck!

This is too gorgeous for me not to throw my hat in. I know it wouldn't be going anywhere if I won, but is that such a bad thing? :-)

Outstanding temari! You've made a huge leap into multicenters with this one. I love it! Please give it to someone other than me. My house overfloweth with temari :O)

Hello Jane, what a gorgeous temari! I do not know anything about temari but it looks like(and most certainly is) a very complicated design. I would like to participate in the draw, too. Chloe Patricia

Congrats on hitting the 100 milestone. I'm STILL working on temari #2.

And it's a beautiful one, as well. I've been checking each day for it, and it's been worth the wait!
