As I have mentioned before, out family has a vacation home in beautiful Camden, Maine. We love going there for a couple weeks every summer.
When we were up there last year we ventured up into New Brunswick, Canada from St. John to Fredericton, where my husband developed his fascination and love affair with... the Moose.
While having dinner at a Mexican Restaurant in Frederickton (is there a Canadian Cuisine?) he asked the waitress about the moose fences along the highway and how bad it would be to hit a moose. In fact here's a little article which will scare the be-jesus out of my hubby. Moose fences need fixing: advocate
So anyway, the waitress looks at him and says, bluntly, "Oh, if you hit a moose you will die. Their eyes don't glow in the dark like a deer's either. No, you won't see them before you hit them." Needless to say, Trent drove us back to Maine that night scared shitless. Which scared me to death... of his driving.
Ever since, the Moose has become his hero. So, last month when we returned from Maine, he came back with a "Moose on the Loose" sign, and a decorative Moose pillow, which he placed proudly in our living room.
About a week ago, he came home from work to see that the dogs had worked on his pillow as they had my knitting... though I have promised to attempt and try and fix it, I found a moose fabric print the other day and told him I would figure out something to make with it for him.
I'm not complaining that he likes the Moose. It is a beautiful majestic creature. And it's a good manly brute animal to like. And I am okay with it... as long as it is limited to pillows and small decorations and I never have a massive moose head hanging over my fireplace. As long as my house decor doesn't get taken over to the point that I feel like I'm walking into someone's hunting cabin in the mightly manly wilderness. And as long as we don't hit one and die.
So anyway, I have fabric choices and now I have to choose and decide what exactly to make. Perhaps some manly 1950s moose pajamas or boxers. I believe I have patterns for both of those. LOL! I am also open to other ideas as always!
