I am working on a temari, and I have taken pictures, but I am having issues with getting the pictures from the camera to the computer. So in the mean time, I thought I would share this picture of a new temari stitcher.
C had picked out a pattern from one of my books; I wrapped the temari and marked it in the pattern she had requested, but then I put it away. When she was over this weekend, she remembered that she had an order in, and asked how it was coming. She was a little surprised when I handed her the mari, and told her to go ahead and stitch, but was willing to give it a try. She concentrated on it for a good long time, and we got 2 or 3 motifs stitched. She was getting a little frustrated, because it was not turning out quite the way she wanted it to, but she kept at it.
She brought it to me a couple of times to get things back on track and kept stitching; I was very proud of her.
I should finish it up before the weekend. (Don't tell her, but I took out most of the stitches she put in.) I was very proud of her willingness to try, and it is actually going to turn out very nice.
