What Started it All

My obsession with making stuff started when I was a kid.  I was that odd child walking around the playground with the skein of yarn under my arm knitting a  rope with my fingers.  That, or I was running around with a gang of boys as their secret pinching weapon.  It was my nimble fingers. 

The above picture is a temari ball.  I learned how to make these just after I got married.  We were young and didn't have a bed so we slept on an air matress.  Well, in the process of making a Japanese thread ball I use a lot of pins.  I mistook the bed for a pincussion.  After blowing the mattress up every night for the next 3 months we finally got a bed.

The more amazing temari balls have been given as gifts . . . before I cared to take pictures.

I'm in the practice and research phase of my bloggin development.  I have found some really great blogs to follow along the way.
