This is S.B.’s birthday slug. He’s based on the pattern for my Valentine bird, with a few alterations. He’s got a little painted wooden birthday present in his “mouth”, and pipe cleaner antennae with painted wooden beads at their ends. His birthday hat is topped with a tiny pom pom.
S.B. had been suggesting for some time that I make a “Huggy Slug” to go with my other huggy creatures.
His name, Mr Buskit, was revealed during the course of a confused driving conversation:
Elizabeth: “What are we waiting for?”
S.B.: “We’re waiting until this bus gets by.”
Elizabeth: “Who’s Mr Buskit?”
Elizabeth: “We’re waiting until Mr Buskit’s by?”
S.B.: “We’re waiting until this bus gets by us.”
S.B.: “Who’s Mr Buskit?”
Elizabeth: “I don’t know. I thought maybe he was a neighborhood pet.”
S.B.: “A neighborhood pet?… Maybe that’s the slug’s name.”
Happy birthday, S.B…from me and Mr Buskit 🙂
