Most avid travelers and nomads would agree with the saying “home is where the heart is.” From family and friends to childhood memories, your hometown is likely to be the place that’s helped define who you are today. That’s why textile artist Celeste Johnston (of Lemon Made Shop) creates her U.S. state-themed embroidery hoop art wall hangings, allowing U.S. residents to pay tribute to their home state with pride.
Each made-to-order design is rendered with hand-stitched bold black outlines, detailing the contours of each state on the map. Johnston then fills each shape with flowers, fruit, and other defining features of each particular landscape. Florida features embroidered oranges, Georgia is filled with stitched peaches, and Texas is adorned with cactus plants and prickly pears.
You can shop Johnston’s designs on Etsy and keep an eye on Instagram for updates on when she’ll next be taking orders.
