black orchid

Here are temari nos. 4, 5, and 6, based on the "morning glory" pattern (Suess). I changed the designs somewhat, used a black thread wrap, and for the embroidery used metallic gold, black, dark steel gray, medium antique violet, light shell pink, and light lavender (these are the names given to the colors by the manufacturer). The light lavender looks white in some of the photos. The main temari is 3 inches in diameter, and the companion temari are 2.5 inches. Completed 28 July 2011 (nos. 004, 005, 006).
