More of the same


 More baby ducks. There has been quite a hatching over the past two days. I'm not entirely sure how many ducklings are over in the poultry yard (duck mothers are being quite secretive) but I do know a couple of them will be a little confused. Their mother is Marie, who is very much a  chook and has already been busily scratching up morsels for them to show them how it is done. They are ducks and really don't do the scratching thing but not to worry, neither party cares whether they are the same species or not. They just know that Marie is the mother and they are the babies. And a very proud mother she is.

Crocheted Christmas baubles

More Christmas ornaments. These are the crocheted baubles I made lsat night. They are super quick and easy to make and although they are not really my style, I am happy enough with them. They are for Christina's ornament swap so I had to make something to my swap partner's tastes which hopefully these are. And that will be it for ornaments for now unless I see something that I really must make.

Big day in the garden tomorrow so an early night for me.
