2011 calendars: rosettes

So for the third calendar panel (here's one and here's two), I decided to keep things simple. I tacked down some grosgrain ribbon in the top left corner and hand-stitched three turquoise rosettes to the panel that I had made as potential wedding accessories back in 2009, but had never used. I finished the calendar by backing it with this fabric.

The calendar is simple, and came together the quickest of the three, but I love how it turned out. Now I just need to finish the fourth calendar panel which is for our house, which is currently sitting on my workbench, untouched...
