Craftster Pick of the Week - Beelisty

Time for another look at some of the great work featured in the forums at Craftster. Note: Although they’re the pick of this week, they may have appeared before this week.

Beelisty is a firm favourite of the Craftster needlecraft scene.

She is the Queen of cross stitch portraiture. Her pieces are usually of her heroes, ranging from Rachel Maddow to Paul Westerberg to Benezir Bhutto. The piece below was started in March 2008 and successfully captures the most powerful, er, couple on the planet right now (whether a David and Victoria Beckham stitch will come along is up to her..!).

She has a great eye for choosing the right portraits and when you consider her portfolio as a whole, you get a sense of what a cool person she is. I love this portrait of Gandhi:

It’s always great to see what Beelisty’s gonna come up with next, and she always delivers. If you want to know her, she has a blog, and if you want to own a piece of her (so to speak) visit her etsy shop!
