I'm still drawing in sketchbooks — and starting to work with colored pencil — but the majority of my creative time has been all about temari. Temari are thread-wrapped embroidered spheres; a traditional Japanese folk art that has become more widely practiced in the West over the past few decades. I've sort of been all about temari for the last six months. If you're interested in taking a look, here are some links:
I've cropped this photo to roughly the 9-inch square — it gets harder and harder to photograph and keep it in focus!... (Project: 27 minutes a day, filling a 9 x 9 inch square. Day 35 = 15 hours 45 minutes.)
27 Minutes: Day 26
I've been posting every fifth day, but day 26 is more exciting than day 25 — the wingspan of this drawing is now officially 9 inches.

Day 26 = 11 hours 42 minutes.)
