This is the last in a series of three succulent planters momo created out of an unstructured wool felt. The medium brown has a touch of navy lace to mark the continuing improvements we've made in only three tries. I've been adding a bit of natural latex to the interior bottom and in ridges up the side for structure, but the wool both retains water in the short term, and breathes so well the soil is completely dry after a week. Picking one up after that period the soil is as light as a dry sponge. It started as an experiment, but I can't think of a better or more elegant container for succulents. I am of course very grateful to momo.

So it's a bit of a story, starting as a memorial for my mother which, her having grown up in Tucson, needed to include a few cacti and succulents. As I looked, almost no "succulent planters" have drainage holes, and all these plants need to go dry for a good bit between waterings. When I saw momo's dreamy felt and lace concoctions they were perfect, even if it took some misuse. With a strategic us of natural latex, water can evaporate out the sides and top, so drainage is everywhere. This turned into a series of three, and momo has been terrific, working through options for size and shape, natural colors, solids and ombrés, and even starching with flour to make my mod's easier. We all know what amazing stuff wool is, but these are practical and delicate, and the process a great chance to work with instead of buy from.

You really can't appreciate these in a photo. I've traded notes with other merchants about how inflexible return policies can be. He volunteered that with a turned bowl, there's no way to judge it without seeing it in a variety of lights, and feeling the finish. momo's felting is the same. It's extremely delicate -- certainly not for teething babies -- but then it's also surprisingly tough. After all, its industrial cousins have no end of uses. For me this will turn into a series, and I look forward to no end of fun talking about how the next few will provide variety, but under momo's guidance steering back to the qualities that make this so wonderful. Back to appreciating things in person, I bought a knitting bowl for a friend, and as he sent it he offered his "100% delighted" guarantee.

About

Originality and Uniqueness of Nature.

"... Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
She is worth more than precious rubies. She finds wool and flax and busily spins it. She goes out to inspect a field and buys it; with her earnings she plants a vineyard.

She is energetic and strong, a hard worker. She watches for bargains; her lights burn late into the night. Her hands are busy spinning thread, her fingers twisting fiber.

She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy. She has no fear of winter for her household because all of them have warm clothes. She quilts her own bedspreads. She dresses like royalty in gowns of finest cloth.

She makes belted linen garments and sashes to sell to the merchants.

She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs with no fear of the future. When she speaks, her words are wise, and kindness is the rule when she gives instructions. She carefully watches all that goes on in her household and does not have to bear the consequences of laziness.

Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: "There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!"

Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised.

Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise."

- Proverbs 31

I wish to live like this woman, creating wonderful things from nature with love and dedication to my family, friends, and God.
