Block #19~ May 11

Definition of “just ducky”: When asked how you’re doing, “just ducky” is a sarcastic way of saying everything is fine.

Block #19 is eight days late in getting done. I had it in my mind, but I have been side-lined by a health issue. Last week, after strolling the San Antonio Riverwalk and visiting Comfort, Texas with my Meemaw friends, I came down with a case of shingles. All I can say is…well, I can’t print the words I have been using. Let’s say I am “just ducky”.

Today is the first time I felt like coming into the studio to work…so, I consider this progress. During our stroll on the San Antonio Riverwalk, we were delighted to see so many ducks and ducklings.I found  myself singing one of my favorite children’s songs, Six Little Ducks. This is the version of the song by Raffi…one of my favorite singers for kids.
I enjoyed watching a mother mallard and her ducklings…such a sweet sight.
I decided to record this memory in my quilt journal. My plans were to thread sketch ducks, but that would have been a bit too much for today. Instead, I drew and painted some ducks on a linen fabric.
I decided to tell a story with this block by having one duckling going in the opposite direction. This is the duckling that swims to the beat of a different drummer.
