Just before school started for the year, we were able to go for a flying trip to visit my parents and grandparents some 400km's away. Going home to find Mum had fiddled with another craft. 
Bright and eye catching. 

Temari meaning hand ball.

(metal egg cups make the perfect display stand)

The polystyrene ball is first wrapped in yarn, then fine cotton thread. Divided into even divisions (the one above with pins is a 10 Division) with pins - having a north pole, south pole, equator and extra points..

Hand made balls for ball games?!

  1. Wow, they are fascinating, Leanne! Never heard to this before! Your mum doesn't pick simple handwork, does she?
