I've seen some amazing Banky cross-stitches here; his work lends well to cross stitch. Here's my humble embroidered deposit into the bank(sy) (whoa, I am punny. Roll Eyes)

It's a maid stenciled onto a white brick wall, with the "tromp l'oeil" effect of her lifting up the wall to empty her dustpan. I outlined some of the bricks in white to enhance the wall effect.
here's one closeup:

And a close-up of the bricks:

I think it's kinda funny. In fact, I'm laughing all the way to the bank(sy)! Okay, I'll stop now, I promise.
