Sometimes things on pinterest and magazines catch my eye and they get filed in my head for a rainy day.
Reading one of my favourite French crafty magazines, Marie Claire Idees - October 2012 I saw a cute little black board map of France.
and all the vintage school maps started popping up everywhere - which I really liked too
and then I meet Annabel Wrigley at Portland Quiltmarket this year and saw online her awesome patchwork map of the USA that she was doing with kids.....
and then I jumped on the map bandwagon and made my own Australian version!
Its now happily hanging in my studio
