I also went shopping (with coupons of course) and picked up some higher quality serger thread spools in fuchsia, teal, deep grey, and a light grey-blue. For the teal I grabbed a special light aqua, teal, and white variegated perle thread that I am very excited about using. The grey is an old standard, it tends to make bright colors really pop. Not so sure about the light blue grey, I was thinking a yellow and variegated blue with maybe some navy, or for another direction pale green. I have lots of pink in mind for the fuchsia, a rose garden probably, with deep green leaves.
If you have an interest in Temari, I strongly suggest you visit the Temarikai website! There is a listing of patterns and designs to learn from without buying costly books.
I will have more on Temari in the coming weeks, but there is a two fold reason why I am making these. I have them listed as an item in my shop, yet I haven't made any in a while. I am drawing up business postcards instead of just business cards, and I want the temari to be pictured on the card. Which means I have to make some to take pictures of to put on the card. Hopefully to be printed and have in hand to pass out at AKON in Dallas this year.
