Cool idea for a Mother's Day gift and you did a lovely job on the embroidery work (while I realize it's outside the scope/concept of this project, I think that a map of all 50 states, or even all the countries of the world, done in a similar style, would be epic).
Super cute, T. And while I love the idea of an embroidered world map, being the map freak that I am, with me in California and my daughter in Denmark...it really is that far. But I might just go ahead and do it anyway. Denial ain't just a river in Egypt, right?
WELL DONE!! as usual, you sure do walk the craft walk, Baby!
