Ducks in the pond

Download now as a pdf pattern

Duck Pond is the name of this block. Did you see the duck feet in the corners? I try to find a reason for the names these blocks are given. It is just to amuse me that I do this. I am one who is easily amused and given to laughter. I had several good laughs today. Not that I remember them LOL.

We went out today for a bit to Safeway. I just asked Ray where we went and he said Safeway. And here I thought we had gone to more than one place. Ah memory fades , again. It seems to falter way too often these days.

I began the process of doing my nails. After the shaping I put a base coat on them. If I do that and then add the nail enamel it does not last. I need to add the enamel tomorrow. That way my manicure lasts for weeks  and I do not have to redo it. I didn't do that the last time I did my nails and it was a bad manicure.

I spent a bit of time this afternoon with my little heart blocks putting them together into rows. I didn't do all the rows because I sat down and forgot about them. Bad memory again.

This is Vancouver, isn't it lovely. My grandson Rick sent it into Facebook. I love this city and have forever. I came here in 1938 . Nothing has made me think otherwise of my city.

This is a delightful picture, the flowers are so pretty and of course we all love the old Singers.  This one is a Singer Featherweight , a much-loved sewing machine. And it is sitting on an old Singer treadle machine.

Go Walk About quilt pattern from Grizzly Gulch Gallery. 

Another colour way for this quilt.

Time to go folks. Have a lovely evening.

Good night.
