Filed under: ANG Main Line Stitchers Chapter, Gift Tags

Nellies Needlers at Woodlawn first introduced me to gift tags when they stitched them to raise money (https://melitastitches4fun.wordpress.com/2014/03/14/woodlawn-roadtrip-2014/). So, I suggested to my ANG Mainline Stitchers that we stitch some over the next year to give to the gift shop to raise money as our next charitable project. We selected A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children where one of our members (Marnie) worked.

Marnie has volunteered to take the stitched patterns and make up the gift tags. So, these are my first tags.

This one is also going to be the basic pattern of the water for my next original design. I saw someone use the pattern on Facebook’s Needlepoint Nation for snow and liked it immediately for water! It is the Snow 20 from Stitch Landscape which is almost identical to the Water 25 pattern except that water is completely symmetrical but I prefer the asymmetrical Snow pattern because water is more unpredictable. No wonder I saw water even though it was “snow”!
