woven in plum scent

Great moon
woven in plum scent,
all mine.
— Kobayashi Issa (1763–1827)

Another C10 all-over spiral pattern, like "firefly" and "focus in the brightest." You can see the un-embroidered step of this in part four of the "anatomy of a temari" posts.

Purple thread wrap with embroidery in a hard-to-define plum/dark lavender/purply violet. The haiku by Issa is in the bell box along with 11 brass rings. Circumference: 9.625 inches / 24.5 cm; diameter: 3 inches / 7.75 cm. Completed 17 October 2011 (no. 041).

Sold to benefit Kiva.org.
