Yellow Circle Sampler

I bought some variated color roving called daffodil a while back and felted it. I wasn't too pleased with the final color striations which was a bummer, though the merino felt is soft and lovely as usual, the piece looks too hippie funky for my taste. To make the best of it I decided to use the piece to experiment with various stitches and see how the combinations look together. I went with a circle motif. I'm not quite done, but I'm finding it quite fun to basically doodle with embroidery.

And this is a picture of the backside of the work. I like it too!
