Well as the title suggests my embroidered map of the world is definitely 'getting there'. South America , North America, Antarctica, Africa and Australasia are all now successfully embroidered/ appliqued, hooray! Only Europe and Asia left, phewf. I've got to admit I can't wait to get it finished so I can move on to some new projects, but I'm pretty pleased with my progress.
I think with the patchwork background and the different colored country's it may be a little 'busy' but that's a lesson I've learnt now so if I go on to make some more to sell I will be keeping the background or the foreground plainer.
