Here is my entry for the challenge. It is a tribute to the late George Carlin and his 7 words you can't say on TV. This is going to be my anniversary gift to my husband. He was a huge fan of George Carlin and was very upset when he passed away. My hubby rattles off these words all the time so I thought it was a fitting quote. I used sublime transfers for all of it for lack of being able to find something man enough anywhere else. I used straight stitch, back stitch, stem stitch, split stitch, and satin stitch. I also used variegated threads and blended threads. It is framed in a plain black frame.
Here is my take on a warning graphic  Grin

Here is a pic taken with flash.

Here is a close up of the devil head. You can't really tell from the pic, but his mustache is filled in with split stitch which gives it a great texture.

Thanks for looking.

Beautiful stitches, and a wonderfully hilarious piece of art, AI!  Hubby will love it!
It always makes me giggle when I see "naughty words" done in needlework. I MUST learn to embroider.

Great stitches and I love the concept Cheesy.

You might want to add a little warning graphic at the top though cause your naughty devil is speaking volumes on the home page  Wink. I know some people get a little sensitive seeing 'cunt' on startup  Shocked Cheesy, LMAO.

I have to agree, I saw a needlework a while back that simply said "fuck off" and I giggled like a little schoolgirl. I love this! It is so neat. I miss George Carlin too!!! Sad
