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."
