For the past few weeks I have been working on some advanced temaril - this first is Cedar and this was done 3 times to get it correct. It is stitched with 3 strands of floss to make an all over covering. The second is a type of yubinuki obi design that is stitched with double perle cotton thread. I stitched twice as my first color choices did not get the design to pop. I then decided to make a yubinuki stand to go with it it.
