A Late Christmas Present....

So, let me explain this piece....I made this for a very good friend of mine from college for Chrismas this year. We were in this class together called Great Ideas here we read books like Candide and Frankenstein and then discussed the philosophy behind those 8:30 am! Our teacher was a character who often spit out little soundbites (I think) to see if we were paying attention. Well, one week we had to read The Communist Manifesto and at one point during our discussion (I'm sorry I can't recall exactly why we were on the topic of Jesus) our teacher said, " it's like, Jesus was the first socialist, which is...problematic." My friend and I burst out laughing in the middle of class. To this day it's one of our many inside jokes, so I felt that I should immortalize it in embroidery. :)
