Item details

This cross stitch/blackwork pattern combines the ancient technique of blackwork embroidery with the modern language of the internet.

Fuck My Life. It's become one of the most popular ways for citizens of the internet to express their frustration with drudgery and disappointment of everyday life, even if it's somewhat hyperbolic. It's also often juxtaposed against expressions of joy at the relative ease with which so many of us live these days, too - as pointed out by the K. Flay song which counterpoints a chorus of "Fuck my life" with refrains of "I love my life," echoing the un-self-aware vapidness of so much social media.

The pattern includes a color PDF and DMC color references. All stitches used are straight stitches or backstitching, but there are some fractional stitches required.

Difficulty: low-to-moderate, but pay attention to the details and plan out your thread path carefully.

The finished piece (if done on 14ct Aida as I did) is the perfect size to fit in a 4"x6" frame (about 3.5" by 5.5", but my sample is shown in a 5"x7" frame to give it a little breathing room.
In addition to the PDF pattern, you'll also receive a high-res JPG scan of my completed piece so you can refer to it if needed.
