Test Stitching

Last year, Debi from Temari Train... of Thought asked for someone to test her instructions for a couple of temari patterns she was working on. I jumped at the chance, and she sent the instructions for this pattern. It was so much fun to stitch!


The biggest problem is that I was asked not to share it until the pattern had been published. For a while it was going to be in a book, but plans have changed, and Debi is publishing these on her blog. Today she talked about this one, so now I can finally show mine. (This picture was taken in July last year.)

This makes me feel like picking up my temari needle and getting to work, but I have Christmas stitching to work on. Hopefully the feeling will not have left by the time I get done with my projects.

That's a fun temari to stitch! It reminds me of a pineapple design. But your muted greens are so delicate - perhaps something else. Nicely done!

Hi Jane,

I love your version of this one! The white background made it so much lighter than my yellow one. I am glad you had fun stitching it. I like this style of stitching too.

Beautiful, Jane! I think this is one of your best. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
