Name tag

I just finished stitching the name tag for an upcoming stitch get together in Sept on Quadra Island, which is across from Campbell River in Vancouver Island, B.C.

The design is stitched on 28ct evenweave with DMC threads. Since I have attended several conventions in the past, I took one of my old plastic name tag holder to insert the stitched name tag that I made.
