like a beached whale

I've had my heart set on making these, and having a baby girl is the perfect excuse. So is a beach day.

Well, I packed up some felt and scissors and went to work while Marybeth's children terrorized the beach goers. {Not really, although there were the seagulls who definitely deserved it...}

Here's the end product:

I think I'll make a whole bunch of various flowers and hold onto them until I find headbands or outfits for coordinating with. For now they'll all reside in a felted flower purgatory. {The large gray flowers were purchased from Michaels a couple of weeks back.} And by the way, we most definitely felt the earthquake up here in Connecticut. I've never felt the earth move before, it was bizarre and cool and creepy all at once...

So you bought the grey roses? I really like those! And Danny felt the earthquake here in Ottawa, he was in the basement. I was up in the kitchen though and didn't feel it. That's okay, we had a 5.9 hit here last summer, and I most definitely felt THAT!
