First Temari Ball
When I was in second grade, my father went to Penn State for a year's sabbatical and we lived in an apartment in State College, PA. While we were there, my mother made friends with two women from Japan. One of them taught her how to make Temari balls. I always wanted to learn how to make them myself and when Barbara Seuss started offering on-line classes, I signed up. Yesterday, I finally finished my first Temari ball. It is a Morning Glory design based on Barbara Seuss's beginner class. The top and bottom look really good, the sides are a bit crooked but it is still beautiful and I don't think very many people will notice.
