Temari Calendar with Prayers – February – Snow
From the word ``yuki (so)'' to purify
snow means purification
It is also an auspicious pattern that portends a good harvest.
A quiet winter evening with indigo dyed thread
Stitching snowflakes with silver thread or white thread
If you don't feel the cold on the ground during the winter, it won't bloom.
Yellow dyed with Halzion
It reminds me of a small breath of spring.
Mr. Yamanishi's haiku selection, Basho, was really wonderful.
I was looking forward to it every time, and I was so excited when I saw Basho.
Light your fire
Show good things
Fire in the snow and cold
It's a conversation, so it's the warmth of being with someone.
The snowman that Basho is working hard to make
The way the snowman is rolled up is also connected to temari.
The sight of Basho rolling up a snowman is so close to what we live in today, and it felt like we were suddenly transported back through time.
I went to the Faculty of Literature (I majored in English), so I can't get enough of the collaboration between words and temari.
This time I tried making various patterns with a snow theme.
The snowflake pattern on the small temari was inspired by the straw star pattern that I had students try out during the regular temari course in December.
At the same time, Ishindenshin's Temari student, who didn't know he was making snowflakes, had already perfected the pattern! So I was surprised.
Let's call it Hiromi snowflake pattern and Temalicious! I think. There are many other cute crystal patterns that are being created, so please check them out → Click here
I think the snowflakes are easier to make than the lace pattern because they have a temari-like stitching motion.
The large temari had a continuous pattern, making it typical of temari. It takes quite a lot of detail to divide the land, but once the land division is finished, it was fun to make, so I would like to do this with the Temari students someday.
I think that there is a hidden meaning behind the temari sphere, where the pattern does not cut and goes all the way around and connects.
Well, the first temari of 2019 was snow.
Praying for a connected 2019 with all of you.
