Deserve your dream.
— Octavio Paz (1914–1998)
This temari is a variation of what I first tried with "Our Imagination Flies" (no. 40): a wrapped pattern, alternating two colors of thread, resulting in a very dimensional effect. On this one I added an obi and some additional highlight lines that doubled as "security" lines — it was part play, part experimentation.
Golden yellow orange thread wrap; embroidery in golden yellow, rust red, and medium chocolate brown. The quote by Octavio Paz is in the bell box along with 9 brass rings. Circumference: 9.5 inches / 24.2 cm; diameter: 3 inches / 7.75 cm. Completed 22 October 2011 (no. 045).
