Duckie Illustrations

What do perle cotton, colored pencils, fabric and buttons and baubles have to do with rubber duckies? It's how my little buddies come to life!

Here I've started work on a an illustration. Note that my Quilting Rubber Duckie is modelling.

Rubber Duckies: Characters All

It's ready to quilt, finally! Yes, a bubblicious theme is in order here.

This little guy is fresh-hatched! Inspired by an old duckie in my collection.

These are a few of the duckie characters that live in my brain.

On to the sewing machine!

Progress on the Rubber Duckie Bathroom

It wasn't a pretty sight when I bought the house a year ago. In fact, truly creepy. I'll spare you the before pictures. The tile around the tub was too far gone to resuscitate. What looked like a problem turned into a great opportunity, so I discovered when I found those light aqua bubbly round glass tiles. Perfect!

Tub done, it was time to address the floor. Too many of the white hexagon tiles were goners, so off tile shopping. Why not make the floor bubbly wonderful too? Juan the tile guy and I played with it and came up with this configuration.

A few duckies have preceded the gang. (Old sink, new Toto.)

But boxes and boxes of duckies remain, waiting for shelves to be built. It's almost a rubber duckie bathroom!
