I am absolutely in love (or over the moon haha, sorry couldn't resist) with this entry for the Nasa/Etsy Space Craft Contest by Rachel Hobson, aka Average Jane Crafter. Apparently there is a chance that an handmade item will fly in space on board of one of the final space shuttle flights. Sadly Rachel's piece didn't make it to the next round (boo!) but the good news is that we get to keep it on our planet for now (yay!) The stitches are amazing both in execution and variety, the texture is absolutely wonderful and you can tell from this embroidery how much Rachel loves the subject!
