Thomas Cup Temari

I've still got a few more temari I want to make before the threads get put away.  This one is the Empress design from Barbara B. Suess's Japanese Temari book.

Here's the latest one.  It's a minor variation of the Blue Arrows pattern from the same book.

I stitched on it while watching the Thomas Cup finals.  I'm not much interested in sports, but for some reason, I'm patriotic about badminton.  At the end of the final match, I almost didn't have the heart to finish this.  As a Malaysian, watching Japan win was just heartbreaking.

  1. These are so very pretty! They look so intricate. I am sure I would mess them up if I were watching badminton as I made them!
