There's people who like Star Wars. There's people who really like Star Wars. And then there's people who make 30-foot long tapestries of Star Wars. I think those guys are in a league of their own.

Take for example Aled Lewis. He's a London based illustrator with a huge love for Star Wars and (seemingly) a hell of a lot of time on his hands. Taking inspiration from the Bayeux Tapestry, he took it upon himself to show the entirety of the Star Wars saga in a 30-foot x 13-inch cross-stitch tapestry. It's currently on display at Gallery1988 in Los Angeles but you can take a look at it below:

For the cross-stitch nerds among you (my mum is one of them), Lewis used a "7 stitch per inch Klostern fabric" which was "stiffened with a thin batting and hemmed with a custom-made printed pixel star fabric on the rear."

Of course, with Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens coming along in 2015, it looks like Lewis might have to thread another needle and get working again. Although it might be difficult to stitch in all of ' lens flare.

What do you think? The awesomest thing ever? Or a massive waste of time? Let us know below.
