I'll get back to it tomorrow but when I received the new Inspirations Magazine I found two great projects that just screamed my name. They are both by USA artists the first is Japanese Kogin embroidery by Phyllis Maurer I started on Saturday and made this much progress already. I used fibers and fab from my stash it is 25 count something and dark mauve pearl 8. It will probably be a stitching rollup. I've needed one for some time and had planed to use a purchased place mat to make it but this looks like more fun.
And it has a very easy article on Japanese temari balls with great instruction for one call Oliver Twist. The article is by Barbara Suess You can see the picture on here site. DH is doing the core and yarn wrap for me. I'm thinking a black string wrap with olive green pearl cotton. This looks to become an addition.
It's back to work the slave drivers want me to earn my paycheck. Geeezzz
