Jess' Birthday Present

One of my good freinds Jess just celebrated her 27th Birthday yesterday. I wanted to make her something and I decided on something either cross stitched or embroidered. She just graduated with a Bio Chem degree (or some such sciency stuff) I looked around for some good quotes and most of them were really long and just lame. Jess is also a big hippie so when I found this quote I knew it was perfect!!

"Nature composes some of her loveliest poems for the microscope"
The end of the quote also says "and telescope", I didn't like that so I just omitted it.
The quote is by Theodore Roszak, Where the Wasteland Ends, 1972

Here it is all finished but not in the frame, I was getting a wicked glare!

She had some people over on Saturday so I gave it to her then, everyone thought the quote was very appropriate, woot!!

So cute!! I love cross-stitched quotes, and they're so personal too, which makes them even better. Yay for homemade awesome gifts!!
