  • Who likes "bacon"?

    While spending time drawing here on the computer, (putting patterns in corel) I was thinking of themes, different "stuff". I pulled up a new pattern (from my to do list) to start and low and behold it was a pig.

    A pig. Hmmm, now it isn't the "full" bacon, and a component of a design, but it got me thinking.... do people even scrollsaw "pigs"? Giggle

    Well I did the Chinese horoscope one a few weeks ago ..

    I haven't seen too many patterns about but they could sell - a lot of people collect pigs ..

      LOL, yep that's what I am doing. Chinese Zodiacs.
      We have most of them done, so it's time to make sure the patterns are too.

      They were more fun to cut than to draw, and corel. LOL.

        And there I was thinking you'd 'Coral' a pig.

        Is that a sign of evolution?

        LOL

            Seriously, this pig is rather cute... and well I am not a "bacon" lover... or any beast on the plate for that matter.


            Ian is right, many people collect pigs. Perhaps I should do the entire pig as it was designed....a fretwork pig. I got the giggles now. Think being snowed in is getting to me.

                    The Chinese New Year is this weekend and next year is the year of the pig in the Chinese Zodiac, so lets see some of the pictures or cuttings of pigs.

                    Ian, maybe you could show us your cutting of the Chinese Zodiac pig.

                    P.S. I do like bacon but I don't eat it very often. Choleserol you know.

                      Here's our "Year of the Pig" from our Chinese Zodiac, Chrestensen Burghout Designs. Not sure if it is a good example of how "we Canadians" make bacon though. lol.

                        There was an interesting BBC television programme last night which said that although the evidence was inconclusive, it appeared that carnivores were physically stronger than vegetarians.

                          Say Gill, I'd like to see a pattern of that one.

                          I do like bacon and pork, but I went to one restaurant in Beijing where they brought the whole pig head out to eat. It was rather shocking to me as a westerner, but I did get up my courage and picked some of the meat off of the head and ate some of it. It did taste pretty good. The name of the restaurant is "The Boars Head". Go figure.
