Introduction: Periodic Table of the Elements Cross Stitch

About: I am a domestic engineer, aka. a stay at home Mom. A former science geek, scenic carpenter, and quilter.

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.

    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...  make a periodic table quilt.  :P

    Anything nerdy done is cross-stitch is automatically awesome!  Good job!

    I think it's brillant. For anyone that has a little kid at home this would be a great addition to their homework spot :-).
