It's been WAY too long since I've been on a road trip!
I'm happy to say that I'll be making a quick drive up to San Francisco this coming Saturday.
One of my stuck-at-home projects was to start stitching all my road trips on a dish towel sized North American map.
I worked up the map in Illustrator, using a Photoshopped denim scan and vector maps purchased from iStock. I had it printed by Spoonflower in cotton twill.
This is a work in progress.
I want to include my planned circumnavigation of Canada in 2024!
I am also still missing some past road trips - the ones where I didn't keep good records and am having trouble remembering where I went. In addition, I'm not including any trips to just San Francisco. Too many!
