Paper Embroidery

I've certainly been enjoying the relaxed schedule of Christmas vacation week here at home. I got some super good news yesterday which I promised to share with you, so here it is...grades were posted and I finished my first semester of college with a GPA of 4.0 in all four of the classes I took! Woo hoo! I'm hoping I can keep that up this coming semester as well!

Now back to our relaxing Christmas vacation. The kids are having fun with their new toys and games, and I've been having fun with some needlework projects. The one I'm going to share today is paper embroidery, which you've seen before at Hooked On Needles, here, here, here and here. Although the individual designs on this project are quite small and relatively quick to work up, the entire project is big, about 30 pieces in all. It started out a little overwhelming, but now that I have quite a few designs all stitched up, I realize that it is very manageable and I should be able to finish it on time. So here is the project of the day...

This design is part of a 4-panel design that I purchased from Stitching Cards. They have loads of fabulous designs for all occasions so it was hard to narrow my choice down to this one design!

I am repeating this same design, only changing the flower petal color and the frame color for variety. The card stock I am using is also several different colors.

Can you guess what the finished product will be? I think I need to make about 30 of these lovely little things. I'll keep you updated on my progress and by the time the finished item is revealed, I'm sure you will have already guessed it!

Are you doing any end-of-year stitching? Or are you spending the last week of 2012 planning your 2013 projects?

Happy Stitching!
