C10 marked maris have pentagons, diamonds and triangle shapes formed with the division lines. C8 marked mari have squares, triangles and diamond shapes; and C6 marked mari have squares and triangles
I started this lesson at the beginning of March and then I went to Mesa, AZ for a metal/patina workshop.
I worked on the first temari, Blue Poppies on a C10. A good way into it I knew it was a massive fail. The measurements were not consistent from center to center and the more I looked at the mari I could see it was not really round. So I set it aside and started over.
Then the Covid-19 pandemic hit and in someways my life bordered on chaos. It wasn't until the end of March that I even felt like doing any stitching but I did finish it. Though I like how it looks I doubt I will stitch this pattern again for a very very long time.
Then at the start of April I started the second temari, Emerald Isle pattern in the lesson which is stitched on a C8. This was easier but I found it boring. I finished it in the second week.
But they are both completed. Next up is writing another pattern as I have to submit 6 as part of my certification work; luckily they do not have to be original patterns!
