layered bands form a star . . .

Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

This is a variation of an adaptation of an interpretation of a pattern . . . you get the idea. My own variation on several termari I have seen in this general style: wrapped layered & woven bands on an S6 division that form a star at the poles where they intersect. This one takes three needles going at the same time and is a bit of a juggle. I actually made it an S12 division and marked 6 of the lines with metallic copper, and stitched the pattern on the other 6.

Black thread wrap with S6 [S12] division in metallic copper; embroidery in dusky lavender, light golden yellow-orange, khaki green, with edging and obi in graphite gray. The quotation by Ralph Waldo Emerson is in the bell box along with 9 brass rings. Circumference: 10.25 inches / 26 cm; diameter: 3.25 inches / 8.3 cm. Completed 26 September 2011 (no. 033).
