You know what’s really cool? Victorian Diatom art. When microscopes were first invented, wealthy people used to arrange diatoms (which are microscopic algae) artfully on slides and give them as gifts.

I’m getting a sewing machine for my birthday/Christmas from my mom, and I think my new hobby is going to be making diatom quilts. Because I think that sounds really cool. And because I need something to occupy myself now that my grad school applications are in. And because I’m a huge nerd.
