i am in awe of the cross stitch ninja, and found this link on her website and I'm sorry, I don't know what it is, but if you google it you'll find it.
My photo is a bit blurry, but i cannot believe that an almost monochromatic stencil can come out so good as a cross stitch.  I'm so inspired, I've been walking round the city taking photos, and working out how to do a cross stitch graffitti piece!
Here's my banksy, and sorry again that there's no link, but you can find it easily enough.

Not only is that an awesome image, it is also the 1st stencil I've seen turned into a x-stitch design, and that opens up so many possibilities...
Yours turned out great!

Aw cool!  Banksy is always impressive, but you may have one-upped him with this.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I heart Banksy...I really love that you did this particular piece, because cross-stitch is considered so fru-fru and the themes so annoyingly shallow. But of course, you knew that. I love using "women's" work to make political/social statements. Two-thumbs up, sister.
