I joined the Hoop Up and Send Swap on flickr again this year to add a couple more gnome themed blocks to my stash for my quilt. The lovely Katy (LethargicLass) requested something stitched in the theme of maps or plans. I was stumped at first until the idea of a map to her from me came to me! Heidi, (Digital Misfit) didn't want to be left out, and since she is on the way I made a special stitching stop at her home with a bouquet of lazy daisies! Katy has swapped with us both in the past so I thought it would be fun.
The photo is a bit dark due to taking it at night before I mailed it out the next morning. For drawing a map free hand I thought it looks pretty good. Google maps was a big help, but some of their borders are wrong too! Satin stitching the Great Lakes sure was fun though! It has been mailed off to Katy and I can't wait until it reaches the final stop on its' stitchy tour. Off to dream up something for my other partner!
