Rubber Duckie...You're The One.....

I've been missing for a few weeks. But now, I am back!!!! 

About a month ago, I found myself in the hospital with a ruptured appendix. This happened just two weeks before my husband and I were to leave on a cruise to celebrate our 30th anniversary. 
We were able to make the cruise...barely and had a great time. I'm sure I will be blogging about it soon.
While I was in the hospital, my sister sent me a cool video class on how to make these Amigurumi animals. I finally was able to sit down yesterday and take the class and finish it today.
So, what do you think? There are a few boo boo's, but for my first one, I don't think it's too bad. I learned a lot making this critter. I had never done any increasing or decreasing so I learned how to do those, and I had only done something in the round once, and I really did not know what I was doing (kinda made it up as I went). I learned THREE new things doing this cute little duckie. He is actually suppose to be a little bluebird, but since I had bright yellow and orange yarn on hand, I decided to change it up a bit.
Sox doesn't know quite what to think about the duck, but I thought the both of them looked good together....


  1. Congrats on your milestone... I guess a cruise isn't the WORST place to recuperate from emergency surgery LOL. Do make room for extra rest at home!

    1. I've been doing A LOT of that this last month. Just went to the doc and he told me I can go back to my normal daily routine. Went to my Pilates class today, and well, my daily routine is not gonna happen for awhile. I am soooo out of shape :P

  2. What a cute duck! My granddaughter would just fall in love with it! Congrats on the accomplishment and so glad you are feeling better.

    1. Thank you! They are pretty easy to make and go real fast. I think I might be doing a lot for Christmas
