So my boyfriend was having some issues coming up with a gift idea for his Dad's birthday.  We were stumbling across the internet one day when we came across some of the Subversive Cross Stitch patterns.  He was really tickled by them, and decided to make a lovely cross stitch for his Rocket Scientist father.  Due to their shared interest (i.e. obsession) with Star Wars, this is what he ultimately created:

During Construction:


The Finished Product:


His Dad absolutely loved his incredibly dorky gift, and gave it a place of honor on his desk at work.  He's getting a kick out of showing off what his twenty one year-old straight son stitched for him.

Hope you all enjoy! I was awfully proud.   Grin
