Temari

Temari the Art of Japanese thread balls!  Temari art dates back at least 1,000 years. 
Temari means “hand” (te) “ball” (mari).  Starting out as toys for children, over the years they have developed into objects of art. 

For Christmas this year I was honored to receive not one, but nine Temari thread balls from my good friends Cathy & Jo!  These are a treasure!







 
Thank you so very much... they will be treasured!
