I know a lot of people who visit these boards love Mitch O'Connell and so do I! This is based on an image in his tattoo book.
Yes, it's a bit creepy but I love this clown Cheesy
I used mostly split stitch, long and short stitch and satin stitch and it's on a piece of quilters cotton, I plan to frame it.
Here's a close up which has come out distorted and thus even more creepy, but show's the stitches a little better

(ps for those who like to see loadsa pics there are a couple more on my blog x)

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I'm so glad that he got to see the piece. Every correspondence I've had with him he is wonderful and always super supportive. He needs to do more line art for us to embroider Cheesy and once again can I say that I am totally blown away and LOVE this piece.
