As you know California has had lots of water recently to "replenish the earth".
Where I live there is an area that is sort of a low spot which in the summer is dry, but with all of the rains lately we've accumulated quite a pond. The ducks find it quickly once it fills.
So this reminded me of the ducks in my quilt, "Sequoia Duckpond", and I thought' I'd share a photo of the stages I went through to construct the ducks in that quilt.
If you look closely at the last stage, you can see all of the threadwork on the duck. Click on the link and you can see where this duck lives on the finished quilt.
