For the fourth ball in my 2020 holiday gift series, I was starting to get low on certain colors. This challenged me to put together a palette that normally wouldn’t be my first choice, and I’m so glad I did! This ended up being one of my favorites. The tan base is warmed by gold guidelines, yellow and peachy pink threads, with white and dark brown to balance it.
The pattern is a color-swapped ‘Bellflower’ from Suess’ Japanese Temari. It’s a simple-10 division, kiku herringbone, and obi belt.
I took a picture in-progress because it was starting to look like the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch and made me laugh.
