I'm really pleased with how this turned out. Ok, so it's not perfect but considering I only started embroidery yesterday. There's a couple of mistakes but I think I managed to patch them up neatly enough. I also probably did it all wrong but I enjoyed it anyway!

 I basically just made a stencil from the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy movie (which I had plans for spray paint stencilling initially) and tried to stitch it as neatly as I could!




It now proudly resides near my PC monitor!
