Philadelphia Flower Show

Monday was my annual trek to the flower show. This year's theme was Hawaii so there were lots of orchids and some nifty lava flows. They expanded the show into the newly completed addition to the convention center and altered the traditional layout. The changes helped keep people moving better, not as congested as in the past. Thank you! I got a much needed dose of bright colours and tropical scents. The day was complete with a visit to the Flying Monkey in the Reading Terminal for a double chocolate brownie, yeah!

New Colourful Felt Design

This is only the first layer of wool and it took HOURS to blend and twirl and position all the colours. I have to lay out at least four more layers of wool, wet it out with hot soapy water and then begin to felt! I have a vision of what I want and hope this gets me there.
