improving on layered felting

We made layered felt at Dagmars class but typically me I got the layout wrong,to get it wavy you need to lay the fibres diagonally, for tassels lay the fibres vertically ,so I wanted to do another one and I am pleased with the mauve and grey one .The grey one above is made by laying down a plastic grid and it worked beautifully I even remembered Dagmars advice to felt it in less of a rush and softer.I am going to add some french knots in red to the top right hand square my husbands suggestion the only one  he has ever made and a great idea. He gets that look of terror like a rabbit caught in the headlights whenever I ask for a critique poor man.
