New Temari of the Week
Since this is a prototype as well, it will not be going in the shop. But I am going to give it away, as I do all my prototypes and this one is going to a great home. I used pink variegated and teal variegated colors with silver guidelines and a white spiderweb accent on the top. The triangles interlock, so I stitched all the pink in sequential order, and then went back with the teal. There are 10 lines of pink and 6 of teal. I really want to do this piece again, and I think I finally have the interlocking method down where the diamonds lay flat and don't bunch up.
I don't know if this design has been done before, but I did come up with it on my own.
I have started wrapping my next mari in deep fuchsia pink. I am thinking about a rose garden, but I'm really not sure yet.
