Saturday..ducks!

I found this duck pattern in an old Workbasket magazine and thought they'd be fun as a candle mat..what do you think? had fun making it anyway....just in time for spring and Easter..I'm working on a second one with Easter eggs all around, each one different, my own design...

I padded this well so am thinking it would make a good hot pad for the table too....
We got up early this morning and drove up to Fontana which is about an hour trip to re key a rental house.....for a property management company...I am hoping to get more business this way.....quicker payment than the foreclosure realtors....it was a lovely ride...the hills and fields are so very green after all the rain we've had..it rained all last night....on the way home, we stopped at Costco and got a few things....had to be very strict and just get what was on the list...didn't stray too far off...but we did find some nice Agave syrup I've been wanting to try as a sweetener....I am going to experiment and see if I can use it making homemade granola for Alan.
This evening I made the Hamburger soup recipe and when Matt (our son) came in, he said how great the house smelled.....he ate a big bowl too along with a slab of cornbread.....
