8X8 LO

My latest Lo of our lovely Grandson .  This duck was made by my lovely father inlaw quite a years ago for our son 1st birthday. It was then passed on to my husbands 2 nieces on the understanding that when they had out grown playing with the duck, it was to be given back to me.  Sadly the duck spent many dark years in our loft until our grandson was born. It took me a while to get it rubbed down & to give it a much needed new coat of paint & handle. The happy ending to this little tale is my father inlaw is so happy to see the Duck being used once again & the fun our grandson is having playing on it.
