While arranging, I realised that when I put the black balls on the orange dots they looked like poppies! At this point, I was getting really excited about the whole thing again! The actual felting process was quite labor intensive because of the size of the scarf (you first arrange the fluffy wool on the silk and then you go over the whole thing several times with soap water to rub everything together). But it was so worth the effort! I like how the fragile silk and the rustic wool work so well together. And of course, I love the poppies!
