RIP Mr. Spock

Sad news greeted Star Trek fans such as myself, as it was announced that Leonard Nimoy, of Dr. Spock fame, passed away of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. I am a huge Trekkie and like many others, this just broke my heart. I felt the need to stitch something to honor him and remembered that I have had this book for quite some time. 


Design: Spock's Burial Robe Embroidery


Fabric: 28 count white opalescent Lugana

Fiber Used:  Access Commodities Soie d'Alger in #1424


Stitcher's Notes: In Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, this was the embroidery that was on Spock's robes when he was 'buried'. I thought it, and the quote accompanying it in the book were appropriate today. 



I must go for now. Lots to do again today. I leave you now with his last Tweet that was posted just a few days ago:

A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP



Phasers set to 'Weep'.
