a creative life
To live a creative life, we must lose out fear of being wrong.
— Joseph Chilton Pearce (b. 1926)
This temari is a pattern for which I love the final result, though making it can be either tedious or relaxing depending on my mood. Cotton packing string is used for the guidelines as thicker anchors for the wrapped rounds of embroidery thread.
Intended to be a companion piece, the colors are the same (with the addition of one) as temari no. 138.
S8. Embroidery in slate gray, chocolate brown, medium antique blue, grass green, medium greenish-blue, and butter yellow. The quote by Pearce is in the bell box along with brass rings that make a quiet traditional rattle. Circumference: 10.25 inches / 26 cm; diameter: 3.26 inches / 8.3 cm. Completed 19 August 2012 (no. 140).
