Things do not change, we change.
— Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
A variation on no. 093 (which I liked so much I decided to keep it for myself). This temari has a reverse kiku herringbone pattern of two interlocked five-point stars—reverse means the kiku points are at the equator and not at the poles. The only problem is that it wasn't until the second to last row that I realized the mistake I had made at one pole! Still, if it sells, it will go for a good cause.
Thread wrap in purple; S10 division (guidelines removed); embroidery in 5 shades of very light lavender-white (not actually white) to dusky lavender to purple. The quote above by Thoreau is in the bell box along with 21 brass rings. Circumference: 10.5 inches / 26.8 cm; diameter: 3.34 inches / 8.53 cm. Completed 16 April 2012 (no. 111).
Sold (at a reduced price) to benefit Kiva.org.
