The news in Japan is so heartbreaking.
It feels lately that our news goes from one tragedy to the next.
If you can, please donate to one of the devasted countries,
sadly there are many to choose from right now.
It is too easy for me to be bogged down in the sadness,
so I try to find a creative outlet.
Well this isn't what I planned on making,
I had grand designs for an appliqued quilt for a dear friend's daughter.
However, my girls revolted this week.
I think I can count on 1 hand the amount of time I've had to work/craft.
So.. the quilt will have to wait until my girls are pacified.
For this challenge, I tried Temari.
Wow, it is harder than it looks!
The tutorial warned that a live class would be more effective.
Try your hand at it and let me know how it goes for you.
I love the the clean lines and modern look.
It is amazing how traditional crafts can easily fit into our world.
Thank you so much for sharing - I will definitely try my hand at this too.
Even if you didn't enter a project, I hope you were inspired to
look more into the the traditional crafts of Japan.
During such a time of upheaval, I think it is important
to grasp the roots of the past for future generations.
