I'm not sure where to put this.  I had an extra piece of wood lying around and wanted to try string art.  I have seen other people do this with states and place the heart where their home town is.  



I printed out an outline of Wisconsin (our new home), taped it to the wood and nailed small nails all around the outline as close as possible.  I used all the colors in my embroidery stash (except for black, white, and brown), and evenly split them among the outer nails, 10 nails per color.  



After I finished, I took a sharpie and drew the quote.  What do you think?

Yay!  I grew up in Wisconsin, and most of my family is there!  Madison is an awesome place to be!
