The Final Frontier

Space has always been a fascination of mine – So when I came across this link a few weeks ago I just couldn’t stop looking at it!

It’s a high-definition, zoomable, 360-degree panoramic view of the night sky … How cool is that!?

I’ve been meaning to do another pointillism-style embroidery so I figured what better inspiration that the evening sky?

Here it is, “The Final Frontier” (can you tell Jim and I have been watching a lot of Star Trek recently?):

It took a few weeks for me to find enough collective time to finish each of those hundreds of French knots, but it was totally worth it.

Does space inspire you?
