Floral Ornament With Rouleau Loop Petals

Is it just me? Has anyone else noticed that time is speeding up? Or least our perception of time? I always thought the older you get, the faster the time seems to go. Then, the other day, a friend pointed out that the kids are noticing it too. Her 10 year old nephew essentially said the same thing. I remember as a kid, time dragged on and I couldn't wait for things to happen.

Anyway, I mention this because I started this flower project on January 13th and it's taken two weeks to get it done. I have more stuff on my plate that I have to attend to, and I really wonder where I'm going to find the extra time.

Back to the flower. Those rouleau loop petals were a bit frustrating to make. I have a tool to turn the strips right side out, but unless you "latch" it just the right way, it's not going to work. So after a bit of trial and error and lots of tugging, I did manage. I think the end result was worth the effort. :)
