duckies





I had some time yesterday to do what I love best - creating patterns! I got the inspiration for this one whilst watching the wild ducks at the flower farm last week - hanging out around the dam doing all the things that duckies do - swimming, grooming, nibbling at the grass, getting all sleepy in the sunshine! I really enjoyed creating this one - ducks have such a lovely shape to work with. I'm thinking I might include some ducky designs in my next range of greeting cards, they're just so fun :)

Very new to blogging, I came across yours. WOW! I absolutely love your work. I have a lot of bare walls in my recently renovated home by the sea. I'm thinking some of your designs would look amazing. Very inspirational.

Moira - thanks, yes work at the flower farm is usually pretty gruelling but there are moments when I feel very lucky to be working out in the beautiful countryside... inspiration does tend to come when you are surrounded by beauty!
