I've already stitched the green dude (or Cosmic Cutie) from H2G2 a couple of times, but I've never posted them here. The first one was with the Watchmen Smiley.
The second one was just the green dude, for the first H2G2 swap, and now I stitched him together with Marvin the Paranoid Android (for Round 2 of the H2G2 swap).

Here they are, from NEW to OLD

All on 18-count aida, black.

Really cute!! I think that the black Aida cloth really makes the colors pop!

Thank you! When I just started doing cross stitch, I only had black aida and red, green and yellow floss. So I pretty much had to stick to subject using only those colors (Bad Brain cover, the green dude and watchmen smiley).

I still enjoy stitching them, they make you think about all the silly H2G2 jokes. Funny, because Douglas Adams never really like the green dude... He's got nothing to do with the story Cheesy

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
