We are Made of Star Stuff

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of star stuff”.
~ Carl Sagan

It is a reminder that we are connected to each other, and to the universe in which we all reside. This pattern is depicted on navy blue cloth, and I recommend you stitch it onto something dark to make the yellow floss stand out. You might even use glow-in-the-dark thread! 😎 This pattern and more available free inside the Notorious Nook, exclusive with Notorious VIP membership, also free.
