My Summer DIY Project

I needed a good summer DIY project that was conducive to lots of car trips and hanging out by bodies of water while chatting with family.

Throw in a large USA road map, laminate it, cut it up, pair each state thoughtfully with my favorite fabric scraps, back it with adhesive, iron it on to a canvas then stitch the whole thing down by hand and you've got the makings of a great (very long!) summer project.
I'm happy to report that the East Coast is looking mighty fine and is well on its way to being completed before July even starts. (Whew! And miraculously my two boys and husband are still alive and wearing clean clothes!)
Can you guess which state holds my heart?! It's pretty bright, I know.
Silliest state award goes to Florida... gotta love those Gators! :) Tebow would be proud.
