Can I put in a request for you to do something involving the whole thing about how learning to fly is easy you just have to figure out how to fall without landing? I'm a huge klutz so I always think of that every time I trip over something.

adding that to the "to do" list! There are so many great quotes and scenes that Mr. Adams may need his own hoop wall in this house.  And what better day to work on them; Happy towel day!

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.

Thank you so much!  It definitley has a looney tunes feel; Meep!Meep!  Often the strange things I add to my pieces (like the scientific names) just float into my brain from who knows where.  I just checked out your blog and your felting is so freakin cool!  I'm asceeered a those pointy needles so I find felting quite amazing and magical  Tongue

I'm having a really hard time with letters/alphabets. 

I hand embroider the labels for the stuffed monsters I make so I get quite a bit of lettering practice but it's still hard!  First I stitched "Oh no not again" then "hello ground" but then "hello ground" looked way better so I had to redo "oh no not again" and then make "hello ground" stick out a little to match. 

have you tried maybe writing them out on the fabric in fadeaway pen, then you can have as many try outs as you like before stitching over whatever lettering you eventually decide on?

wicked project, btw - you're one hoppy frood! You should do a h2g2 themed one on towelling fabric  Grin

It turned out soooo good, despite your mishap with the thought bubbles. Love it!

 Cheesy Awesome! 

Co-incidentally, I had the idea to do a bowl of petunia's & "oh no not again" on a pincushion just yesterday before I saw this. 

I wont do it now - you've done it too well!    Smiley
