From poppy to posie

 I've adminred Gillian Harris' "field of poppies" wall hanging from her "Complete Feltmaking" book for years and decided to try a mini version...  Here are the results 

 Wool fibers laid out ~11 x 26"

initial wetting and rolling done, fibers are nicely felted ready to be worked without the bubble wrap

looking a bit too plain and the poppy petals weren't looking right

 so I needled some extra petals, added some beads in the center and turned the poppy into a posie...
