I came across this post about Japanese gifts from Jillian in Italy and I was blown away by the Temari Balls.
I have not had such a lovely surprise in years. This looks like friendship bracelet times 10, with butter and sugar on top. And, as a matter of fact, the balls are offered as gesture of friendship.
I looked around, and found a tutorial here
That is not a trivial undertaking. But those balls are so beautiful, I just might try it!
Have you ever seen these? (Am I just late to the party?)
