Takin time to smell the...flowers?

So here is the third of my little lambz - Stefen. He was so thoroughly intruiged by my newly-felted flowers for my garden party bag, he had to stop his roaming of the house to check them out!

n.b. - I have found that after a good felting and swirling through the spin cycle - these gorgeous flowers love an evening sitting in a double-walled tumbler or roll of painter's/packing tape (depending on whether they are 10-petalled or 5 petalled flowers respectively) to assist in their ability to hold their curvy-ness.

After the first 30-40 minutes of reminders that it is fine to smell the flowers - not chew or roll on them, Stefen finally settled down for a short summer's nap.
once he settled down for his nap and the pups were tucked away, I was able to plow into my first box from KnitPicks - some lovely Wool of the Andes - to work on a holiday gift - blueberry color - and wool for my entrelac bag I wanna work on...


Oh- it is time for my first TAG!!!
