Thanks all!   Grin I'm happy to report that it arrived safe and sound (mailing these things always makes me nervous)

I made this as a gift for my niece's first birthday and I've been waiting to post until she got it.  It's embroidery floss on cotton in a 7" hoop.  I used outline stitch, backstitch, a tiny bit of satin stitch on the ladybug and a slightly altered chain stitch on the border.  It was a challenge (check out my blog for more info on that http://embroidnerd.blogspot.com/2011/08/little-side-project.html) and about halfway through I very nearly tossed it (I tend to hit that wall with everything I make but have learned that I very rarely end up with an unsuccessful piece as long as I just stick with it).  I started it in June but had to get some things done for a show so in real time it took almost two months.  As far as actual work time I'd say it took maybe 8 hours.  Kind of a long time for the size but I wanted that chainstitch as even as possible so there was measuring and a few do overs involved.  So, without further ado, I present a portrait of my gorgeous niece:

So awesome!  The chain stitch looks fab and you combined the three sources really nicely on this.  With the circle behind his head it reminds me of a holy card hee hee and a flamingo holy card is just the sort of thing I'd love to hang on my wall.   Grin

I keep coming back to look at this cuz it's just so cute!  I started watching Firefly on NetFlix a few weeks ago and am slowly making my way through the series.  I'm trying to make it last as long as possible since there are so few episodes  Cry  This is the next episode and I can't wait to get the kids to bed, break out the embroidery and watch it!  I've seen many incarnations of Jayne's hat but I think this is the first needlework version and I just love it.

I absolutely love it Smiley
How delightfully quirky! Love the labels!
This is amazing.  AMAZING.  By far the best thing I have EVER seen on Craftster. 

You are my hero.
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

Thank you all!  I can't tell you how happy it makes me to know there are so many Guide geeks here!

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 know others have already said this but I have to say it again.  DON'T underestimate the value of the work you put into this and what an amazing piece of art you have created!  Aim high and let them make a counter offer.  Congratulations on the work and all that has followed!  (PS if you do sell it, tell them to put it in the San Fran museum so I can go and see it!)

Thank you AND thank you!!   Grin  So much campy goodness in his flicks.

Awesomeness!  I was just thinking about this episode today.  The pantomime between the doctor and Donna cracks me up everytime I see it!  I've seen quite a few adipose plushies but this is for sure the best.  Really well made and so cute!
