Baby's Breath and Roses Temari

I think this temari is just adorable! Kawaii - totemo kawaii! are the words I'd use. Baby's Breath and Roses is from the Japanese temari book Owari Temari: Temari from the Owari Region (Owari Temari) by Ayako Sata. ISBN 4-8377-0391-7. 68 pages. Published in 1991 by Macaw.

In the book, the ball has a black thread wrap and the roses are pink. A nice combination but since the holidays are just around the corner, I couldn't resist stitching in Christmas colors. This is a combination 8 division temari that is a part of the Level 4 (Master) curriculum of the Japan Temari Association.
