For the last task in the creation of the duckie I wrote up some silly sayings and a message for the back of the box. And then waited for word that the duckies had shipped. To save on frieght charges, which can be significant, the Quilting Rubber Duckie was to ship with several new Celebridcuks, including Captain Hook. As is goes with most things, a little problem cropped up in that Captain Hook's arm didn't quite fit in the box, so the entire shipment was held up a little.

In the meantime the large quilt trade and consumer shows held annually in Houston were upon us. Two boxes of ducks were air shipped to my hotel. Upon arrival I retrieved them and hustled up to my room to open the box. She is everything I envisioned and more. She's beautiful!

Just wanted to say that you're my hero for undertaking this! It's also a dream of mine to create a custom rubber duckie. I had a pet mallard as a kid, and have a huge collection, including several plush. My favorite is Ducky Lucky, whom I've had since I was two or three:
