My husband, Staley, loves anything about space or space exploration.  Over the years, he has remarked about how incredible the photos taken by the Hubble telescope are.  Since I spend my life trying to think of what I can give him as presents, I became hooked on Hubble for inspiration.  This is a picture of the Cartwheel Galaxy, taken by the Hubble telescope, that I hooked for Staley’s Christmas present last year (2019).

I was so far out of my comfort zone while hooking this piece, I felt like I was in outer space.  My sister-in-law, Kris McDermet, provided a lot of the sparkle fabric for this piece.  And following last year’s summer hook in at Lake Morey,  I received a nice surprise package in the mail from Gina Steen with a piece of sparkle fabric.  Thank you, Kris and Gina, for your contributions which really helped to make “Doing Cartwheels” shine.
