Scandinavian Embroidery Project Part One

I am stitching on a motif from my Scandinavian Christmas embroidery pattern.    

The motif is a circle with text and a snowflake:

I am stitching the text in a bright red floss and the snowflake in blue and silver floss.  I am also adding a few blue sequins.  So far so good....

I will post a finished picture as well as my floss colors and stitch list soon!

Embroidered Christmas Presents

My current work-in-progress is the embroidering of this Christmas boxes motif.  
I am trying a few different stitches on the biggest box and deciding which look best 

I love the floss color palette I am using on this project.  These are not colors I would usually think to put together.  However, I was looking at my color wheel for ideas - I started with the gold floss. The triad color scheme for gold {yellow/orange} is red/violet and blue/green.  Beautiful!
