I'm in Trouble Now...

I've discovered the art of making Temari!  I bought the book Japanese Temari about a month ago and while I've browsed through it a couple of times, tonight I actually sat down to make one!

The pictures aren't great but here's the one I made:

I made the mari or the core ball from scratch.  It's wrapped in black sewing thread.  For the surface stitching I used Kreinik #8 braid 001 (silver); DMC perle cotton #5 in 3041, 3042 and 414 (or 415, I forget).

Here's a link to the book that I used:

Happy Stitching!
