Long Forgotten WIP – Embroidered Map

I think this might have been the first embroidery project I’ve ever done. I started it maybe 2 or 3 years ago, I’m not even sure when it was.
I remember why I put it aside though. I started getting to the small states on the east coast and they were getting a lot harder to do with this stitch outline and I got frustrated.
I can’t decide if I should just finish it or if I should start over in a different style. I would like to have a stitched map!

Have you recently rescued any long forgotten projects?

      Thanks! I just can’t decide if it is worth finishing one I don’t love completely but is almost done or if I should start over and hope to do a better job.

    I have so many of these long, lost projects! I might have to go digging in the closet this week. I love this piece–I hope you find a way to enjoy it again!

    New follower here, I think this is so cute! I would totally finish it! I have a US Map project that I want to do. I just need to get started on mine.

    And I agree that it would be perfect along with the 50 States embroidery project πŸ™‚

    Oh yes, finish it, you are nearly there. What are you going to use it for? Will it go on the wall, or make a fabulous cushion cover or something else?
