With lots of time on our hands these days I found that I am doing a really good job in catching up with UFO's long overdue for finishing.
This Christmas runner has been waiting for quilting since mid year 2018.
I actually made two, one for me and one for my youngest daughter. This 4 tree runner I quilted with metallic silver and gold thread. It is a bit of a pain to work with so the 3 tree runner I just used regular cotton thread.
I treated myself to an extension table for my Bernina 750. It is wonderful when quilting items to have all that nice extra flat area.
My daughter went to check on her lady duck to see what was going on with her egg sitting. She said she was pleased to see one new duckling. Well at that point she decided it best to move her into a fenced in area for her safety and discovered things were much more interesting than one little one.
Oh my, 13 of them. Plus one more egg, however that egg is not a duck egg. She said she noticed one of her hens wondered in there one day while she was feeding lady duck and laid an egg. She left it there, not wanting to disturb the nest. She said if it hatches this coming week, mother duck may be fostering a chicken left by that lazy hen.
