EGA Nametag Finish!
I finished up my name tag this afternoon and it is now ready to be "finished" so that I can wear it at guild and club meetings. I even got the charms on all by myself! The apple represents Winchester, which is the apple capital of the United States (I think!). White House Apples is headquartered here and we have an annual Apple Blossom Festival coming up in a few weeks. The cardinal is the state bird of Virginia.
The butterflies are a border I added myself. I had some extra space at the bottom and really wanted to add at least one purple butterfly, since this will represent "me" every time I go stitching with a group. I looked at Hobby Lobby and Joann's for charms, but couldn't find anything I liked. So, I just decided to stitch them on myself.
