This week’s ‘Saturday Selection’ is a  beautiful Temari ball which has been hand embroidered by ArtBySunfire.Flower Trellis Temari Ball

According to ArtbySunfire, temari balls are an ancient Japanese fiber art which began as toys for children.  Over  time they became  beautifully embroidered decorative art pieces.
The gift of temari represents a wish for good luck and were given on very special occasions.

Have a look at her shop where you can see more of these lovely objects and also some cool binders and note cards
