Yesterday I went to a baby shower for one of the other women at the karate school, so I whipped up a temari earlier in the week to take as my gift. (Temari are often given as baby presents in Japan.) Since she’s having a boy, I chose the pattern “Emperor” from Barb Suess’s first book. I wasn’t sure how she’d want to display it, so I put a braided hanger cord on it that she can remove later if she wants to.
On the same day I finished the temari, I also decided to make cookies. I guess I was in sort of a color theme, because they came out nicely coordinated with the temari.
That was just the first pan done. There were a lot more in the end, I assure you. Mmmm, cookies. (Those are just the Oatmeal Scotchies recipe from the back of the butterscotch chips package, if you’re feeling inspired to make your own.)
