Item details

"If we knew why the bowl of petunias was thinking 'Oh no, not again', we might know more about the nature of the Universe..."

*Listing is for the pattern only, not the finished work*

I created this traditional style blackwork embroidery based on the part of 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' involving the bowl of petunias. My original design is about 5"x7" stitched on 18 count Aida fabric. Different fabric counts will alter the finished design size. I recommend using 2 strands of DMC or equivalent floss on 18 ct, 3 if 16 or higher. If you have any questions, please let me know!

*The finished product made from this pattern is yours to do with as you will, all I ask is please do not sell the actual pattern :)

Average review
Lovely pattern. The subtle Hitchhiker's reference goes right over the heads of folks who aren't Dougie Adams fan. My first attempt at blackwork and it's going well.
