7 inch hoop, embroidery floss and felt applique on flannel

My latest completed project and my current favorite.  It's hard to see in the picture but the thought bubbles stick out a little.  It was my first attempt at stumpwork and it was completely accidental.  I wanted to redo the thought bubbles because the text wasn't straight.  I didn't want to risk damaging the fabric so I just stitched a new piece of felt on over the top.  I love how it turned out in the end!  Oh and the scientific names I threw in just cuz  Tongue

here it is in its lovely new flexi hoop!  I covered the back with a piece of felt to hide the raw edges of the flannel. . . it looks quite nice Smiley  Also here is the blog post about this piece (I made a horrible craftster faux pas and linked it to my main page before. . .how embarrassing)  Embarrassed http://embroidnerd.tumblr.com/post/4741488118/several-miles-above-the-surface-of-an-alien

rooocks...great work on all of it!

I'm living/working in Yosemite Nat'l Park til further notice! Blogging about it here. No swapping for me, and minimal crafting time, for the coming months. Almost done with library school! That sums things up for now.

I love this!
It is funny and very well made.
'Saving' the text bubbles made them even better, I think.
The piece has such a finished look, because of the little details (mud spilling, the vertical lines that suggest movement).
Great job!

Infinitely awesome.
Great work!

I think my favorite part is the scientific names - like they're having a coyote/road runner-style race for the ground. Haha.
