So maybe you think cross stitching is something only grandmas or great aunts so. If so, you’re totally wrong! Cross stitching has taken a turn for the awesome thanks to the creativity (and snakiness) of us young-uns and sites like Etsy, where we can share all our funny, weird, or dirty craft ideas. However, this is a science blog, not a “Sara gets all mushy about crafts” blog (although I do a bit of cross stitching myself it tends to be on the adult side), and I’ve been collecting some kick-ass works of science-inspired cross stitchery on my romps through the internet. I encountered a really amazing one this morning and was thusly inspired to curate them into a post.
To begin, here’s the one that started it all:
How gorgeous is that?! It doesn’t even look like a cross stitch. Inspired by Carl Sagan, this design features a nebula, the birth place of stars. You can see more details over at its creator’s (nuclearArt) Etsy shop.
