If you are easily offended then I suggest you do NOT scroll past this picture.

I have not been a big fan of using rude language or imagery in my work (although yes I did do that ONE embroidery but), but I  was invited to participate in a project involving said word. I enjoyed the challenge of seeing if I could visually create a piece that added my own style with a very commonly used word.


so here it is, the f and c being my OWN design, U is by Giacomo Franco's from his Anthropomorphic Alphabet circa 1600's, and K from this book 
and just for fun
