OK, so the temari thing seems like it's going to stick! I just love doing these, it feels like tai chi for my fingers. Go to TemariKai for everything you want to know and more about the art of temari, or to Kiku Designs for more lovely tidbits. You should also check out TemariMath, Debi A's awesome site for yet another amazing facet of temari! You can also view pictures from my parents' Aug '08 trip to the JTA's Temari Museum here.
