Was all prepared to start my next project but hooking took a right hand turn.  There were two items which needed attention first and if they weren't taken care of it would bug the heck out of me.  One was working on the Olde Ducks.

Here is what the Mama duck's beak looked like before.
And here is what it looks like now after trying to corn row a thin piece of darker between the beak and the light.
I'd thought about using a thicker piece of wool, even red but wanted to try and maintain the Magdalena look.  Hey, who knows what might happen with mama duck before it is bound; there might be yet another transformation.

My other project which bugged me was my computer chair.  About 3 years ago I hooked this chair pad (an antique adaptation) for my computer chair.  The chair was otherwise boring and wanted something a little more welcoming. 
 Since that time the arm rests have gotten very worn, as you can see by this picture.  Every time I go to the computer I see it wearing and tearing more each day and it was bugging me.
So, my friends, that situation has been remedied and I'll post all about it on my next post.  Stay tuned.
Have a great evening and please be kind to one another.


  1. What a difference that makes, cannot tell you changed it, but gave it a whole new look.


  2. What an eye you have!

    Merry Christmas!

  3. A subtle change with a huge result.

  4. A very subtle difference indeed and it took me a while to see the difference but you're right. It made a difference.

    Merry Christmas. I have one more gift to get and I'll be ready for Christmas.



Thanks for taking the time to visit and I always welcome comments.
