aquaprofunda: a close-up of pink yarn (yarn)

Captain Awkward is without a doubt the best advise columnist on the internet. My favourite catch phrase of hers would have to be "don't listen to your jerkbrain"*. I love it so much I embroidered it so I can look at it and remind myself of it every day.

I chose to leave the ends messy in the back and showing through. It seemed an appropriate representation of my jerk brain always lurking just below the surface.

Lettering I got from the cross stitch alphabet tool, and the border is taken from Blackwork Made Easy.

* I realised at the end of the project that I'd made it "jerk brain" instead of the Captain's "jerkbrain". Not too bothered as it's for me and I always mentally think of it as "jerk brain".

That border is really beautiful and I am going to pinch it for calligraphy.

Also, I love the ends showing through the back. So perfectly representative!
