These two temari were made for Christmas and New Year decorational purposes. I used green thread for background, and stitched the designs in festive red, white, and yellow colors.
First temari is a classical kiku (chrysantemum) design:
Second temari is also a kiku design, but a bit modified and embellished with yellow diamonds (stitched in masu kagari) around the obi. This pattern is a simplified version af a ball, that I found in a Japanese Temari magazine.
