Colorado Highway Sign Cross Stitch

The stitched example, Highway 149, is a gorgeous road in southwest Colorado that goes through the lovely little town of Creede. I was fortunate to drive this road earlier this year as since then, the still-burning West Fork Fire has threatened Creede. Highway 149 was even shut down for a while.

 

 

SO, to help the wildfire relief efforts for this fire, the Black Forest fire, the Royal Gorge fire and all the other fires burning in Colorado, from now until September 30, 2013, I will donate $1.00 from every sale of this cross stitch pattern to the Colorado Red Cross!

I can easily customize this pattern for any of your favorite Colorado Highways, and man there are a ton of beautiful drives in the state.
