The new work Temari of this week is a butterfly.


The new work Temari of this week is a butterfly.

As for this Temari, 12 butterflies are stitched.
This Temari is very popular among a male.

This is the first time that I open to the public in a network.
But some Temaris appeared in a part of Blogs.
Since I gave.

I did not take out this Temari to a network until now.
Since it was not able to write the procedure of a way to make.
Myself and explanation of a way made even if it can make were not completed.

I was able to take the photograph of the procedure of a way to make at last.

Now, it is the Temari of signs that I want to make most.

The pattern is made from silk thread.
This silk thread is the thread of the end of textiles.

Usually, such silk thread is thrown away.
I made the silk thread the Temari.
Since the number of colors is restricted to such thread, a design is difficult for me.

The Temari of this week is a plum.
The pattern is made from silk thread.
The pattern of a plum is made from stitching to a star type.

This silk thread is the thread of the end of textiles.
Usually, such silk thread is thrown away.
I made the silk thread the Temari.

Since the number of colors is restricted to such thread, a design is difficult for me.

A traditional design is made until it extends a five-cornered stitch and space disappears.
However, I made the five-cornered stitch little so that a pink foundation might remain.

Silk thread. 

Silk thread .


Those who know the process from which silk thread is made very value silk thread.


I may sometimes be surprised.

I am writing English using translation software.

I am surprised when Japanese is made into English.

I become the feeling which looked in at the back of the heart of the person who made the language.


I translated the silkworm into English.

The silkworm was expressed as the insect of silk.

This is entomologically right.

However, when only the half showed the thing of a silkworm, I felt.


In Japanese, a silkworm is written to be the insect of Ten.

It is the thing of God in Ten.

I was taught when the character of a silkworm was learned.

If a silkworm is the insect which God gave to man.


Silk is produced by the life of a silkworm.

Silk thread is taken out, immediately after a silkworm makes a cocoon and the cocoon finishes making.

A cocoon is boiled and silk thread is taken out.

And a silkworm dies.

After a silkworm comes out from a cocoon, when the cocoon is used, the quality of silk thread gets very bad.

Material of the core of temari-ball of an old time. 

Material of the core of temari-ball of an old time.



I bought the book of Temari written in English of several volumes recently.

It was written that every book made the core of a Temari from a commercial ball.

The book published in Japan is also written that a new thing uses a commercial ball.



My Temari is an old way of making.

I make a Temari, without using the ball of marketing of a core.


According to record, there are those who live in the beach having used sponge for the core.

Moreover, there is also record of having used the cotton of Zenmai.



Zenmai is a kind of a fern.

In Japan, it is used as edible for many years.



The grandmother was using the thing which shaved the tree thinly.

Old clothes have been used.

The mother was using old clothes and chaff.

I use chaff and cotton for the core of temari-ball.



If temari-ball is shaken, there are some in which there is Caracalla sound.

It is told to an old time that nuts and a kind were put in.


Although temari-ball was made as a girl's toy, it is made as an auspicious occasion or a talisman in many cases.

It seems that the kind of the nuts put in into temari-ball or kind was decided.

Though regrettable, I do not know in detail about this nuts or kind.



However, when a girl died, valued temari-ball was buried in a corner of the yard.

A seed takes out a bud soon.

A family looks at the tree and remembers the dead girl.

The new Temari work.





The new Temari work of this week is a chrysanthemum.

Usually, Obi has only many things around which thread was wound.


However, the maker was not planning.

Space occurred in the equatorial part of a Temari.

there is a case where he wants to give change to Obi purposely etc.

Thus, the Temari which is different from usual by giving change to Obi is made.



The pattern of a chrysanthemum is united with other geometric patterns in many cases.

Two methods are taken when space is made to a Temari.

It passes thread in the shape of radiation, and uses a technique called Mathuba.

A chrysanthemum may be used when filling much more space.

Melon bread.

I read the next writing in a certain place.


I want to eat melon bread.

In animation of Japan, a hero is making melon bread, or is eating in it.

However, melon bread is the thing which Japanese people devised.


I have also made melon bread before at home.

And I was sure.

Melon bread is the most delicious immediately after burning.

It is impossible to send melon bread from Japan.

Because, it is since time will be taken before arriving.


Then, I made the recipe of melon bread.

Temari-uta

Temari-uta is the song sung while playing a Temari.

The present Temari turned into a Temari as a decoration.

Those who sing a Temari song also decreased very much.

I do not know many songs, either.

It is only one that I can sing.

The meaning of a song is as follows.

Where is the place where you were born?

The place where we were born is Higo.

Where [ of Higo ] is it?

It is Kumamoto.

Where [ of Kumamoto ] is it?

It is Senba.

A raccoon dog is in a Senba mountain.

Those who live by hunting shot the gun with it.

Those who live by hunting boiled the raccoon dog, and burned and ate it.

It was hidden by leaves.


******************************


In present Japan, I have not heard the talk of eating a raccoon dog.

There are those who eat a rabbit, a wild boar, and a deer.

A raccoon dog is in the duty eaten in an old tale.

The Temari of this week is a plum.



The Temari of this week is a plum.

The pattern of this Temari is called "the plum by a stellar stitch."

Although the design of a Temari is in Japanese every place, there is little what can pinpoint an area.


This Temari is called Higo-Mari.
It is in Kumamoto of Kyusyuu with Higo, and the name is known for the Temari song in Japan.

Since the Temari of a similar design married, I made.
My mother and the grandmother were making the Temari.
And when yielding someone a Temari, it is said that a Temari is taken out to a bride.


If this Temari shakes, there will be sound in it.
This is because the box into which the bell was put is contained in the core.
It is believed that the sound of a bell becomes a talisman.


This Temari is making the pattern with the sewing thread of silk.


If the pattern of a Temari is made with thin thread, a Temari will be finished very delicately.

How do you do.

How do you do.
I am making Temari-ball in Japan.
I aim one week the speed which makes a Temari at one piece.

I take the photograph of a Temari on Sunday.
And it is introducing to the diary before or after Monday or Tuesday.

I have Blog and the site else [ here ].
The name on my network has nyankorodou, temarineko, temari-cat, etc.

I want to write the diary about a Temari here.
I am writing English using translation software.
Please allow my poor English if you please.
