Julie & Co's Jaw-Dropping Japanese Temari Ball Decorations
Since words couldn't possible do Julie's Temari work justice (she's a color GENIUS!), and I couldn't possibly fit all of my favorite pieces in this blog post...
...I invite you to simply visit her online gallery, instead, where her shop announceent invites us:
"Welcome to my little corner of Etsy and enjoy browsing through my handmade items! I love to work with my hands, I delight in the feel of soft cotton, smooth threads, cool crochet hooks, and fuzzy yarn. I love beauty and texture, detail and color. I have been sewing, crafting, creating and imagining for over 30 years and still find joy in each new project and idea.
Japanese Temari hand balls are my passion -- their colors and symmetry delight me and their design and precision challenge me. These ancient folk art creations are visually stunning and so wonderful to display. Perfect for housewarming gifts, unique thank-you offerings, and special-day gift giving.
Please linger, browse, envision temari in your home and in your custom colors! Be inspired!"
Julie, I couldn't be more inspired, thank you for putting your outstanding work "out there" for everyone to enjoy!
