Astra Layer Cake by Janet Clare
Janet says one lockdown evening in May, we sat down as a family to watch live as the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket took off with the dragon crew to begin their 250 mile journey to the international space station.
Many hours later we were able to see the astronauts arrive safely and could only marvel at the extraordinary achievements of all involved. A truly fascinating and optimistic story for 2020.
And so I began to daydream about the great white unknown above us, to doodle stars and constellations and to create galaxies with ink and bleach. Before long I had a sketchbook of ideas and a new fabric collection on the way.
I hope Astra encourages you to create quilts for all the star gazers in your life.
