Making blanks

I love stitching temari and yubinuki.  Notice I say stitching. Prepping bases isn't a horrible job... but when the mood takes me to stitch a design the last thing I want to do is make a base.  This is why I regularly have blank making sessions.  I love having a stash ready to go.  This week I made 16 Yubinuki bases (4 each in blue, black, red and yellow) and 20 temari bases (8 black, 6 red, and 6 white). So I am all ready for the next pattern that jumps off the page (book or Internet) grabs me by the collar and demands to be stitched immediately.

I have finished a really lovely yubinuki tonight but I'm not ready to show it yet because it is a gift for my Mum's birthday next week.
