Twelve little ducklings....

The twelve little "duckies" for the "Just Ducky" quilt are now hand appliqued to the backgrounds. It didn't take that much time since I had all the pieces stitched to each other prior to putting them on the background.
Next step is to get the rows put together along with their pieced blocks, sashing and pieced border. I am thinking of sending it off to the quilter to do something special for it, but since it is so close to Christmas and the baby shower is early January, I am not sure how lucky I am going to get.
Also, the "Thermis" neck warmer is complete.
This yarn was so nice to work with. I did run out of yarn even though I was assured that there would be enough yarn in "one" skein, but luckily I was able to find a matching skein on Friday and get this all done. I do have another yarn that I wanted to make up a second one of these in, so I bought an extra skein of that so that I wouldn't run out again, but it was a slightly different dye lot so I think I will alternate the two yarns as I go along on it. This is probably my next project to start.
Between now and the time I post again, we will probably all have celebrated Thanksgiving, so it is going to be a very busy week. If I don't get back in here, have fun preparing your big family dinner and Happy Thanksgiving a little ahead of time.
