Felted Paradise Flowers

For me, PARADISE includes taking workshops now that I’m “retired.” 
This week, I went to a new friend’s house and learned how to make felted flowers…something that I’ve had a hankering to do
for a long time now.

This is my paradise flower after initially laying out the wool fibers.

Here’s how it looked after adding soap, hot water, and some mild pressure.

And, after smacking it around for a time, here’s the finished product! 

It can be my paradise prop.
Whenever I need an attitude adjustment, I’ll just clip this little number into my hair and transport myself into the realm of appreciation and joy!
