You Quack Me Up

So the couple who owns the apartment I've been living in for more than 3 years just came back from New York to stay for a few months. It's a good thing the apartment has two rooms or else my roomie and I would've been kicked out. Yikes! O_O But seriously, the couple are really nice and chill. Although I have to admit it gets a bit uncomfortable at times since they're basically strangers, but I've got no complaints. They're good people. ^^

Last Christmas I decided to make them one of my ami softees and initially I thought to invent a pattern for cute penguins. I had the sketch down and the design was perfect, but there was just one problem... I ran out of time.
Ugh! Time management: the unattainable dream. T_T So bye-bye cute penguin idea and hello crocheting pattern found in the internet. 

So I was browsing for an emergency pattern when I came to LuiLuh's website and saw one of the cutest amigurumis I've ever seen. Then that was it. I fell in love and with penguins forgotten, I went on to crocheting adorable grey duckies instead. Squeeeee!!! XD

After my binge-eating slash movie/anime watching marathon holidays at my hometown, I went back to the city to get ready for another year of hard labor and broken dreams. Yah... Adulting is hard. Hahaha!

Anyway, the moment I got to the apartment I immediately gave my gift and being such a bashful I kept apologizing about it. It's a bad habit but it's the only thing I could do, I was ridiculously awkward. O_O Thankfully they were impressed that I made them a gift and found the duckies adorable. I was really touched when they named them after their grandchildren. It made all the effort worthwhile. ^^
