Today, I got to help sew binding on the astronomical quilt that astronaut Karen Nyberg started while on the Space Station, and more than 2,000 people around the world contributed blocks to. Aside from being a much-needed crafting opportunity, I met to a of wonderful people who have done amazing things at NASA, like working on Hubble missions, suiting up astronauts, and working with the imagery taken by astronauts every day. Sitting in a group, working on a quilt is amazing, and then you add space (and sci-fi - met some awesome geeks, too!) to it, and you pretty much have my idea of Nirvana. What an incredible opportunity. Thanks for the heads up, Cindy! If you are going to Houston. quilt Festival, you'll get to see the 10 panels of star quilt blocks on display! #quilting#starquilt #astronomicalquilt #HoustonQuiltFestival

#AdmiralAckbarFAIL We're having some fruit fly issues in the office, so I had to whip up my Fruit Fly Justice mixture. I tried to make a funny sign so it won't get messed with. Ackbar is hard to draw, y'all!
