New Year's Temari Exchange

My exchange partner this time was Elmira, from Canada. She sent me this beautiful C8 temari in pink, coral, and maroon. There are 2 each of 3 different star patterns, with the beautiful triangles separating the faces.

As I mentioned, I opened the package about 2 minutes into the New Year. It had arrived a week early, and the anticipation was fun. I had to put the box away in the hall/desk area because it was driving me nuts!

Unfortunately, my temari did not reach Elmira before New Year's Day, even though I sent it on the 19th. It arrived today I am so sorry she had to wait for 3 extra days! This is the one I sent her.

I really like how it turned out, except I wish I had used a sparkly thread for the stars. This is #2 in the set, with 6 bands between centers.
