I made this a while back when I had a bunch of time on my hands in the Peace Corps...I have since cut it out and backed it on a black background. It is each country with their respective flag.

Africa


Southern Africa

This is awfully hormonal of me, but this is making me ridiculously teary eyed.  I'm from the south... feeling very homesick right now Cry   Really lovely work, and a lovely thing to remind of your time out there - super impressed with how good the fiddly flags look too by the way (especially when some of them look so tiny!)

What a wonderful design and great stitching.  It must really pop on a black background.

That is breathtaking, must have taken a long time to finish but it's wonderful. I would like to see it on a black background Cheesy

Wow, that is incredible!  My best friend is in the Peace Corps in Africa right now, and I know she'd appreciate it as well.  I can't even imagine how much work went into that, but the end product is seriously fantastic.  Awesome stitching!
