America, Land that We Love

After some encouraging from a yahoo group I belong to I pulled out my UFO Jean Farish's America, Land That We Love.  I committed to stitching 1 hour on it on Wednesdays in a SAL.  Between last Wed and yesterday I stitched up the Georgia block.  The picture shows my progress so far.  I changed some of the border colors.  Next Wed I start Hawaii!

Hi, My name is Irene from Portland, OR. I'm just finishing up the last 10 states of this pattern. My friends at About.com/cross stitch are enjoying my progress. But I have 2 people who would like this pattern. I'm giving my pamphlet to one stitcher. But another has fallen in love with it. Any idea where she might be able to find a copy? There's been no word from the designer since 2010.
