One of Us! One of Us!

Karen Nyberg, the American astronaut who went up to the International Space Station at the end of last month, brought craft supplies with her: fabric, needle, thread. She sews and quilts! She's planning on making something over the next six months, though she's not sure what. "But that's part of creativity is that it comes with the feeling of the day so I have the supplies in my hands to create if I get the opportunity and the creative notion to do so." 

Check out her twitter feed () or pinterest (http://pinterest.com/knyberg/) to see fat quarters floating in space! Our people truly are everywhere!

Love it. She should go to the moon and replace that flag with a nice quilted piece.

I second Jo's suggestion: get rid of that ugly synthetic cloth...

This is great, love it. We need more high-profile crafters. What's with all these celebrities...are they too busy making sex tapes and getting arrested? What about all that time they have while they're in rehab?? :)
