i started stitching this memory map when the kids were making maps to earn their wolf badge with Wild Explorers Club. cascade locks (in the columbia river gorge) has become one of our family's favorite places to explore. some favorite memories placed + stitched : hot cocoa with ally wilton and her kids (while dave & josh mixed 'Home' back at home / picking blackberries (every summer) / shepherd and josh chopping down a christmas tree for a kinfolk shoot (our first introduction to the place) / flying balsa wood glider planes with josh / a picnic with grandma & grandpa. i was inspired by the multi-media map-making ideas in Map Art Lab. as a textile artist, this was the ideal map-making medium for me!
