I was inspired by this print I found online to make some  sort ofcraft. All of the states are to scale, but just arranged into a heart shape.  

I decided to enlarge it and do an embroidery of it.  I used the chain stitch and several different colors (around 30) of floss. I'm really happy with the result. I am even more happy that I found a frame that fit it perfectly... kind of freaky how that worked out.  I feel pretty lucky Smiley

Enjoy! Let me know if you have any compliments/criticisms.









The link wasn't working so here is the picture of the original inspiration:


The image was found by fingerpistol in an etsy shop as well:

if the other links don't work for you (they wouldn't work for me either), you can see it in this etsy shop (where the print originated): http://www.etsy.com/shop/beauchamping

This is simply adorable, and with the frame it's just perfect, will have to wist.

That is really cool. I love the concept. The frame couldn't be more perfect. AND I love the colors. Hitting "this rocks" for sure.
I'd like to see the original inspiration too- the link won't work though.
