So when I saw Sally's very sweet ducky PJ's I couldn't resist the urge to make some for the little one, despite the fact that she has hand-me-downs from her two older sisters.
I used the lovely O+S bedtime story PJ pattern but am yet to make the top, in the meantime I did a quick applique on an existing shirt.
This also reminds me to express long-overdue thanks for another lovely duck that arrived in my letter box, a very long time ago from the lovely Kate.
I mentioned to Kate that I wanted to get a duck shirt for the duck-mad one and she sent me not only a duck shirt but a mushroom singlet and some cup cakes ones as well , all wrapped up in a fabulous 70s cafe-style kitchen curtain.

I planned to wait and thank Kate using a picture of said shirt, but I'm unable to show you the actual shirt because despite now being slightly snug on her rather round little belly, the duck literally goes from the wash onto the child, back to the wash, back onto the child.
You get the picture.
And each time it emerges from the washing basket a shout of 'duuuuuck' echoes through the house.
So thanks Kate, sorry this is so belated but I can't tell you how much your shirts are appreciated, and I think soon duck might migrate to a new larger shirt.
