Ceci n'est pas une moustache

Jason grew a beard for the first time in a long time this winter. He grew so attached to it (pun intended, of course) that when he shaved it in May, he seemed uncomfortable to be seen without his beard.

We were doing the crossword puzzle the other night and somehow the word moustache was brought up. I can't remember whether it was a clue or an answer. I got this great idea to make a mustache mini-quilt.

Before I could really get started, I had to model my moustache.

I tried to get the cat to model it as well, but she would have none of it. She was more interested in a potential snuggle.

So, Rene Magritte has a painting (This is not a pipe) with a pipe. Magritte is one of Jason's favorite artists and I found his pipe painting funny. It was the perfect inspiration to create this wall hanging for our bathroom.

Ceci n'est pas une moustache translates to "This is not a moustache." Inspired by "This is not a pipe" by Magritte.
