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.
Collect photos from visits to different states, cut in shape of state, and adhere to map. A world map would be fun as well!
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.))
