Happy One-Balled Pirates Day!

I have a very rad cousin whom I don't see very often (close to never) but whom I still keep in touch with through Facebook. Recently her husband was diagnosed with testicular cancer and well, lost a ball. I told her that I wanted to make a sampler for her, not necessarily cancer related, but she wrote back saying that she would love an embroidery that worked in the whole losing a ball thing. SHE TOLD ME I COULD DO IT.

Hopefully today she won't unfriend me on Facebook.

So here it is in all of its weird and random glory:

one-armed pirate still has one ball!


(Oh, and please ignore the weird coloration around the wording. I used water to get rid of the soluble ink.)
