Cross Stitch This, Ya Jagoff!
Etsy artist combines home decor with local quirks.
A few weeks ago, my son and I were in World of Values picking up Halloween decorations when he spotted an oval-shaped “Jagoff” bumper sticker at the register, readily available for impulse-purchasing.
He said, "What is a jag … off?"
I said, "Ummmmmm. How 'bout them Bucs?!"
He's definitely got some Pittsburghese in his lexicon, but what’s the appropriate age to teach a child about jagoffs?
Speaking of Pittsburghese, I was alerted to this new Etsy shop, StitchBurghese, on Twitter and I love it so much that I had to share it with you.
It's like “Mama's Family” meets Yinz Family.
Check out the gallery below for some sample patterns you can buy for the cross-stitch enthusiast in your life, or if you want to give it a whirl and make a few yourself for Christmas gifts!
I'm off to email the artist about a possible "Jagoffs Make Me Stabby" design. Instant best seller.
