Quack the baby duckling has the job of cheering me up and keeping my hands busy. Good luck with that one, Duck. The fabric on the tops of the wings has a longer nap than the rest of the creature. I may have to use larger beads. I am hoping they will look like feathers. Will try it out in the sunshine of a wintery afternoon. Big news scoop. Smoochy the Frog sold on my Etsy site. I had no hopes of selling any of the entries there, so this is a lovely surprise and huge gratification. Am almost eager to get the holidays over so I can mail him out!
