My birthday gift by me to me, of a resist dye workshop back in April....keeps on giving!  I'm slowly working through the stack of felted wool designs created in the Chad Hagan 2-day class.  I may have to take it again once these are complete because I'm seriously and totally addicted to embellishing each and every one.

Don't forget....each of these photos can be enlarged by clicking on them.

 One of my favorites was this 4 'bath color' plaid.  The colors are not ones I'd normally select, but isn't that what we should do....push ourselves to explore new avenues?
 I'm amused now looking back at my mind set for embellishing this piece.  I was SURE I had a plan...in fact from the moment this came out of the last dye bath I had could 'SEE' it. 

So, I started with some simple running stitches on the orange areas using DMC embroidery floss.  I'm worried....it's so blaaaaaa.

I was hoping by the time I added the brown larger running stitches the plaid design would be enhanced and come together.  Hummmm.....
