Making panels with my dyed wool

Yesterday I experimented with hand dyeing wool.  Today I wanted to make wool panels from that wool to check the color AFTER wet felting.  I am happy to say that I had no color loss after wet felting!  The following panel is one that I am going to embroider, mat, and frame.  I added some silk fibers and a bunch of the green wool that I purchased earlier.  The base and flowers are from the merino that I dyed yesterday.  I am happy so far.... I LOVE SPRING!
