Hello everyone,

Today I completed yet another listen of the audiobook for Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy. I just love this book so much so I thought it would be fun to do a cross stitch design of this most famous scene where two homing missiles get turned into other things by the impossibility drive of the Heart of Gold. 

The first missile gets turned into a rather surprised sperm whale who wants to know about the world it is created into. It wants to become friends with everything even the ground that it is hurtling toward until its rather unfortunate and messy demise. 

The second missile gets turned into a bowl of Petunias who thinks 'Oh no, Not again!' Heres the full quote for that:

Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now.


Inspiration for the sperm whale was found in this image in the public domain:
