I whipped this up on some scrap cloth for my dad.  He works as a nuclear engineer. I've been able to see a nuclear power plant from my back yard for most of my life. He's always been passionate about nuclear power and he's also a bit of a ladies man in the office. I thought this would make him blush and laugh. I was right. The ladies of the office will never let him live this down.

sorry for the bad photo quality. I couldn't get it framed before I gave it to him.

My Dad was a nuclear engineer too!  He's retired now.  He likes to point out to people who complain about nuclear, that the people who say it is making them sick, tend to live around agriculture...where they use a lot of horrible pesticides. Just a thought....

And your cross stitch is supper cute too!

Great idea, and beautiful work.
