Taken over by . . . ducklings!

A few random notes for today . . . one of our Pet Show winners has graciously passed along her prize to another --- seems she is a cat lover and a sweet person, but not doing much quilting. So, we had another drawing and Colleen of Lucky Duck Dreams is the winner of a sampler pack of Heat Press Batting Together! Yay! Congratulations! Your prize will be on its way soon!

I also had a sticky note here to let you know about my progress on of my current Christm --- Peep! Peep!


Peep, peep, peep!!

We are the ducklings that Snoodles and her family rescued!! Aren't we cute?

Our mom had fourteen of us. Yup. Fourteen. We heard Snoodles say that she thought our mom was amazing. We think so, too, but we can't find her now. She hatched us out about four days ago, and they said we looked adorable following mom down to the lake .... but this morning she wasn't here. Sniff. Six of our bruvvers and sisters were missing, too. Peep!

We don't know what happened, and I heard Snoodles and her family talking about it, and they are not sure, either. It could have been a coyote or turtles or snakey, but there's no clues to be found. Just the eight of us, peeping our heads off, trying to get mom to come back.

They watched over us all day, to make sure none of the big bad snapping turtles eated us. Then they said they just couldn't stand it if something happened to us, so they picked us up very gently and put us in a big box. We peeped a lot. Pooped a lot, too, but hey, we were nervous!

They brought us home to their screened porch and fixed a pen for us, with newspapers in the bottom. But before they put us in there, they brought us a wonderfully big washtub and let us swim around and get clean. We did mention there was a fair amount of poop in the box, right?

Anyway, we have a nice clean home, and they say we will stay here for a few days, while they make us a pen at the lake. We heard them planning it, and they are going to try to keep snakeys and turtles out until we are big enough to fend for ourselves. We like the sounds of that.

OK, we'll turn the blog back over to Snoodles and that froggie, now. Bye! Peep! Peep!

Ahem. You see what happens when you allow animals a little leeway? They walk all over ya! We'll be back soon and show you some quilt-y progress!
