    Emboidered Map: A good way to learn the U.S. states while practicing some sewing skills. The link shows how to do it!

    Okay, it's not cross stitch, but embroidery. Same tools. Fill in the states as you visit them. One with a world map would be pretty awesome also. Sounds like a good project to take along on a road trip.

    Awesome idea for the places I've lived and visited. Need a world map.

    document where you've traveled. I'd need a world map, but super cute idea... Maybe as a pillow cover

this is similar to this awesome 70s embroidery sampler my mom made of the states, but in hers each state was filled in with what the state is known for, so new york has the statue of liberty, georgia has a peach, etc. i love my mom's 70s sewing projects.

Embroider a trip on the map and frame. i think i'm going to do this with the route we took when we moved across the country. a lot of my family is still back in Indiana so it will be like a reminder/connection from where we came and "home" ((I didn't write this but it's funny how it is the same thing I would have said~H.))
