Martin Luther King Jr. talked Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura) out of leaving Star Trek: The Original Series. She waned to leave because of how badly she was treated, but he convinced her that she was an icon for African-American women.
I loved Uhura! I thought she was a wonderful character. Granted she didn’t get much in the way of parts but she made the most of it!
A better photo will follow along with a price but here is my latest creation.
Couldn’t get it all in one photo - much too large. But the top is done and with some more material for the backing and the batting, it will soon be quilted!

This is my drawing of a king size sampler quilt I’m making. I just finished the top and now to do the backing, make the quilt sandwich and quilt it.

Purple finch “fuzzy” yarn halter top and belt. Not seen in the photo but there is a lovely cranberry print harem pants that goes with it!
The lovely Tina modeling again for me.
From Wikipedia: “Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Edward Lawrence (16 August 1888 – 19 May 1935), known professionally as T. E. Lawrence, was a British Army officer renowned especially for his liaison role during the Arab Revolt against Ottoman Turkish rule of 1916–18. The extraordinary breadth and variety of his activities and associations, and his ability to describe them vividly in writing, earned him international fame as Lawrence of Arabia, a title which was used for the 1962 film based on his World War I activities.”
All right, I grant I may be biased towards Col. Lawrence by Peter O’Toole’s very fine depiction of him in the 1962 film, but even without that, there’s no denying this man (soldier, archaeologist, and writer) had a fascinating life.
I love Tina in this! She was very kind to model for me. It has a very gypsy feel to it and it appears to be much a favorite at my etsy shop!
