I had this thought that if you made artwork out of the things you need to learn / memorize in school, maybe it would help by seeing it everyday in your home.  Next up, a painting of the quadratic equation.

I used the Linux program KXStitch to make this pattern. Its a really easy program to use.

It took me a little over a year, (I made some other things in between) and it took almost 10 whole skeins of embroidery floss.  

Each square has the symbol and the name. I wanted to add the atomic number, but I ran out of space. All the elements are there up to Copernicium. I didn't do those UU elements. I had to draw the line somewhere.  :)

I will post another picture when I get it framed. I was just so excited to finish I had to post it now. :)

I hope you like it. 

Wooowwww, I want this pattern!!! Do you sell it??? <br> <br>It Is wonderful!! I love it!?
Do you have a copy of the pattern?
I love cross stitch and that looks really cool. Do you by any chance have a close up shot of the table? I'm just curious how the individual squares look.
There is only one thing left to do...&nbsp; make a periodic table quilt.&nbsp; :P<br> <br> Anything nerdy done is cross-stitch is automatically awesome!&nbsp; Good job!<br>
I think it's brillant. For anyone that has a little kid at home this would be a great addition to their homework spot :-). <br> <br>Moon
Love it!
Thanks! I take that as a really big compliment coming from you. (mr. featured author) :)<br>
<sub>Not to mention, Mr Science Teacher...</sub>
Awesome, how big is it?
it's about 16&quot; by 8&quot; <br><br>it's a lot of tiny long words. :)<br>
DANG! Pretty skilled work there!
