Hi! This traditional Japanese Temari is just a delight to stitch! Parades of little Ladybirds dance around the ball, between the flowers - very spring or summerish! The design involves creating a basic C10 ball and then further dividing it to create - wait for it - 122 poles!! Don't panic! - full and detailed instructions are given. Your initial division does have to be as accurate as possible though, for the rest to look just right, so some C10 experience is advised. The design elements are easy to stitch once you get past the dividing and are really fun to do. You can create a really jazzy flower garden with lots of different bright colours, or a gentle cottage garden with just a few pastel shades, like the pic - your choice! Happy stitching! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY prepare a basic C10 division Temari ball

My mother taught me to knit at age 4 and I haven't stopped crafting since! I work at a variety of crafts and also write tutorials to help others to find new skills or brush up on existing ones. In 'real life' I'm a qualified antiques restorer. I am fascinated by Japanese Temari and have written a number of tutorials in English to help non-Japanese stitchers to create some of the amazing designs. Although the tutorials are ranked into Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced, Temari from the upper two levels can quite easily be worked by stitchers with little experience of the craft, as the tutorials give very detailed, step-by-step instructions. Full support is given by email for all my tutorials. If you have a problem stitching your project, drop me a line and we'll solve it together.
