In the Temari Facebook group I belong to Nicola posted pictures of a Temari she designed and would teach it in an online workshop; the design being a swirl of Peacock feathers. I signed up and then selected my colors and wound 2 mari in preparation.
The workshop started around 1 pm London Time (Nicoloa lives in the UK) which was 7am here in Texas. I woke up early (630 am) to get the computer ready and attached via the HDMI cable to the large TV in family room, I made a large coffee and put in my thermos mug and grabbed a quick bite. I was the only participant from the USA and there were 5 other students from England and Scotland.
The workshop lasted 4 hours which was more than enough time to complete 1 of the 6 feathers as well as talking about other temari things - I shared information on Rainbow Gallery threads which I use when I need a metallic, which everyone else were not familiar with.
I finished the small temari during the next week and the following two weeks I worked on the larger temari, in the evening, while watching movies.
