It's 20 x 21 cm and all made in split stitch and Holbein stitch.

Thank you! About a week perhaps? But then I was doing a lot of other things inbetween too.

This ROCKS!!

The concept for this is absolutely brilliant and your execution of it is even better. I think it's so awesome that this unique image inspired you to create such an amazing piece of embroidery.

Great job!

Holy crap that's awesome!  It makes me want to stitch a little light plot (I'm an electrician in a theatre).   Grin

Oh my! Do you have a link to the plans? This would be a GREAT gift for my husband, the lego-lover. Cheesy I've been trying to think of things to embroider for him.
