Some Arches

The arches on the side are done.  Getting close to the middle and done with this part.


I used Kreinik's 1/8 inch ribbon to mark the lines of this ball.  It's definitely chunkier than Nordic Gold.  For this design, it worked, though!  I ended up with a lacy looking temari.  This one's for the bazaar, too.

More Neighborhood

These photos were taken from our car as we drove through our neighborhood.  With no sidewalks and rutted roads, it's somewhat dangerous to walk very far, especially with the dog.  From these pictures, you can see that we have goats and chickens and some farmland, along with public (working) wells and unpaved roads.  Makes for an interesting place to live, although I'm not looking forward to navigating the area after snowfall.

Triangles for Christmas

Another winter bazaar temari.  This one's about the same size as the renzoku one.  I think they make a nice pair.

Past Houston

Houston wasn't a problem - breezed right through it on my march down the coast.  What IS a problem is there isn't enough ribbon floss in the kit.  Ordered some, and I hope it gets here soon.

A Bit of Americana, Kind Of

What is more American than fast food at the mall?  Our local MallDova (great name, isn't it?) has a KFC, a McDonald's and a Sbarro pizza.  The chicken at the KFC tastes a bit different, but they nailed the cole slaw.

Ribbon Candy

This particular ball is also for the charity.  It was done in a renzoku design and in kyo-temari thread.  Bright, shiny Christmas ribbon candy!
