SQUAWK! rhymes with ...

Several months ago while visiting family in St. George, my sister-in-law asked me to stitch a sampler for her kitchen. The phrase she wanted stitched was: 'Never trust a skinny cook.' So I stitched one for her. I hadn't seen it for awhile and I couldn't remember what it looked like so I had her send me this picture:

SQUAWK! This is so fugly. Sure, I was out of town and had limited resources, but come on! My meds must not have been working that day. 

And you see it, right?  If you look at it out of the corner of your eye or stare at it while squinting. It doesn't look like it says 'Never trust a skinny cook.' It looks like it says, 'Never trust a skinny [rhymes with SQUAWK!].' So not good! (But maybe kinda true? I have limited experience in that department.)

Sorry, dear SIL. I have made you a new one. Hopefully this one will be more family-friendly for your kitchen.
Never trust a SKINNY cook.


  1. I just have to say - I saw the image on my FB feed and couldn't quite read it - and I thought it said, "Never trust a skinny cock". And I was like, "Wow, straight people have all kinds of weird sayings!"

    1. I'm glad that you saw it, too! It practically screams at me.

  2. So...I think they both look great actually LOL Is that bad of me?

  3. I like the second one better! Nice job!
