Last year I was clearing the copyright for the pictures in a graffitti book and discovered a female artist called Miss Van. I really love her ladies so I decided to embroider one and here's the result...



It's really tiny cross stitch, took a fair while. I really like how cheeky she is.
Hope you like it too.

Thanks! The stitching is just straight lines (is that back stitch?) and cross stitch for the blocks of colours. All with the cottons at 2 strands thick

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

This is too weird. I was just thinking the other day that I wanted to stitch up a Miss. Van or Fafi. This blows me away! I love it.
