Duck, Duck, Goose

Hubby: There's a duck!

Me: Huh? Wha'??

Hubby: In your stitching...

*scrambles to look at picture from the previous post*

Me: *gasping and dying of laughter* I'm going to have to post about this!!!

Thus, the topic of today's post. Might as well fly (pun intended, HAHAHA) with it, right?

First things first. Y'all want a new WIP, right? Lady A's gloves and clutch are done. YAY!! See the duck?? LOL!



I started on her skin last night and hopefully that part will be done by the end of the week. I have to do a training session on Saturday though, so that will be about 5 hours of no stitching. :(


A few weeks ago, outside of hubby's office, a mama duck decided to lay her eggs in an ashtray.

So, a notice went up on the wall and everyone is eagerly waiting for the duckling to hatch. *fingers crossed*

We're wondering how she's going to get her babies out of there when they're old enough...

I'll keep you guys posted!



Now, we can't have a Friday post without something cute, right? With the topic at hand... awwwwwh....!!!! :D










Try as I might, and believe me I tried!, I couldn't find a cute guy with a duck or goose!! So, what's a girl to do but make her own. After all, I can't have my readers disappointed before they start their weekend, can I? ;)

Cute ducklings, Joyce. And the one on top looks like a dragon with an identity problem...
This afternoon I saw a movie of a less fortunate duck: http://volgdevos.nl/ Click 'vos grijpt bergeend' (fox catches ...duck) It is horrible for the duck, be warned.

I think it looks like Loch Ness monster haha. Love the duck pictures though. Oh yeah that stitching photo is great too haha.

AHahahaaaaa!! Duck glove! Totally looks like a duck! Can't look at it now without seeing a duck! Well, she is looking good and I'm glad you're stitching more again :D Good luck with the training session. I hope you get paid for it!! Can't believe a duck chose an ashtray to lay her eggs?!?!? Thanks for the eye candy!

HMBW!!!

I only saw the first pic and thought 'why's she switched to stitching Nessie?' Does look like a duck, too, though :D Weird how those things show up sometimes!

Your stitching is as gorgeous as ever! :D I must say that I for one am disappointed no hunks have posed with ducklings! We need to start an appeal...lol!

My first thought was it looked to me like a dragon.

Then I realize it's her arm. You are to funny.

Yes, I'd have to say dragon too - wonder why?! But she's coming along nicely otherwise! Thanks for sharing the chick pics, especially the last one...
Susan said…
Thank you so much for thinking of your readers and making that last photo for us! You will never be able to look at Lady A without seeing that duck! Too cool about the duck in the ashtray (much better use than for cigarette butts!!)
Melissa said…
Thats funny, and how observant of your hubby! I enjoy your blog, gorgeous men, cute critters and stitching of course. :) Really looking forward to seeing your Lady A finished..she is going to be amazing!
Emma/Itzy said…
ahaha awesome photo editing skills right there! Aww its very cute about the duck making a nest in the ashtray. Near my work a bird once made a nest in a traffic light, you know how they have those curved bits around the lights? Yep, in there! It was very sweet :)
Claire said…
Great photos.x
SoCal Debbie said…
The last pic is the best!

And beautiful stitching, by the way!
Keebles said…
When I first saw the "green arms", I thought of zombies! I wouldn't have seen the duck at all...guess that shows how my mind works! She will be gorgeous when you get her finished!
geeky Heather said…
ROTFLOL!!! Think Lady Alex is doing some shadow puppetry???

Love duck guy. Although he does look a little puzzled at what he's going to do with that duck. LOL!
valerie said…
I think that Loch Ness comment is hysterical because I didn't think it looked so much as a duck but a sea monster glove. You've made amazing progress and the duck photos are cute! And the dude is hot! ;)
Novia said…
Ducky dance...
The dude with the duck... suddenly I want to eat Peking duck with him....
Meari said…
The glove looks like a dinosaur to me, lol.

Love the last duck pic!
