What else to do with beautiful hand-dyed wool

As I said in my last post, I am trying to find other ways to use my hand-dyed wool. I hook with it, appliqué with it, and lately embroider on it. Here is a piece that is part embroidery and part appliqué.

This piece measures approximately 11" inch square. The background was a piece of wool that I've had for a while. I cut some of it into strips, but kept the rest. First, I embroidered the bird, and then I started to surround it with leaves. Such fun!

I'd like to mount it on a piece of birch bark or a piece of light colored barn siding. We'll see which I find first.
