Function: noun

Meaning: 1 [noncount] : the act or process of completing or finishing something : the state of being complete or finished He will receive his degree upon completion of his studies. The project is near completion. [=almost finished]

 Upon completion of Duke's nap he will entertain you with a short presentation of my most recently completed project.

Happy Saturday everyone. Now that I am bright eyed and busy tailed I would like to show you the jumbo quilling project that my mom was working on

The flowers are very pretty but they don't smell like real flowers do. 

Even though it is snowing outside it feels like spring time inside with this bright little pot of flowers. Even the butterfly likes it.

That concludes my presentation. I hope you enjoyed it. 

Well done Duke. You did good. Now it's off to the kitchen for a special treat.


  1. The second picture posted here is beyond words! SO ADORABLE! (Both Duke, and the Project!) This could be made into a poster and sold to 4th grade girls to hang up in their rooms! So precious!

  2. And I practiced textures!Hahaaa.... I Love these of Duke!!!
    He's such a doll! Sorry about the snow though! It's just... Moist here, wants to rain but can't decide...
    Stay warm girl!

  3. OMG, that is so cute, those wonderful flowers. And Duke you sure did do a good presentation. You don't even have to water those. What a good deal. Your Mom did a super job on those. We are really impressed. Have a great week end.

  4. Wow ~ that is fantastic! A lot of work has gone into that. So cute.

    Duke... lovely presentation as always... :)
    xo Catherine

  5. Ann, that looks fab! I love the little butterfly!

  6. Oh, I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!! Everything about it! It seems you can make these really fast! I've never known anyone who does this, and had never seen any before you. It must be a kind of rare craft. Why isn't it more popular, it is so beautiful and versatile!

  7. How adorable! The flowers too!

  8. Beautiful work Ann - love the one Duke is smelling the flowers - you did a great job tfs!!!

  9. Very nicely done, Duke! Does your mom sell her creations? Otherwise, there soon won't be anywhere for you to sleep!

  10. I love the flowers you made. So cute! And Duke sure does make a great model. You need to frame the one of Duke smelling them.

  11. Duke is an absolute doll...oh, yes, the flowers are cute too. lol
    In fact, they do remind you of Spring in this very dreary time of year.

  12. Those flowers are so cute and I love the butterfly but once again, Duke, you are the cutest! Bravo for a great presentation and great work by your mom!

  26. What a great presentation of your lovely quilled flowers!! I can see Duke was well behaved and didn't eat any - lol!! You should put some of his pictures on the Camera Critters pictures he would be so loved over there! hugs, antonella :-)

  27. Duke is model extraordinary! These flowers are almost as cute as he is!! Really happy and bright and ...oh my...just a prelude to Spring which is right around the corner!!

  30. Good presentin', Duke! Those flowers are pretty. I would have tried to chomp them, though.

  31. Well Done, Duke, you deserve something yummy. Tell mom this is a lovely work. The flying butterfly is so funny!

  32. You lost me on the definition. Just kidding.:-D)

  33. LOVE Duke! The flower pot is so cute. I knew your project would look better than the ones you saw at the dollar store.

  34. Audrey same here, I'm horrible with flowers

    out on the prairie it is much easier to work with

    sandra well I'm pretty sure it's ALL about Duke

    Russ you have a soft spot for cuteness huh? :)

    philippa I was really pleased with how the shots of Duke came out. The light and the dog cooperated for a change

    duni thank you, it feels a little springier just looking at them

    antonella, he's usually very good about not eating things that he shouldn'

    ann he sure is. thank goodness for the approach of spring :)

    ann thank you

    donna much better than all the white I've been looking at that's for sure

    karen thanks

    daisy duke is very disciplined and knows that he must not chomp :)

    josep it took me a while to figure out how I was going to put that butterfly in there :)

    jean lol, I usually have trouble with that word, I'm very good however at procrastination

    Anne this one has been sitting far too long and I had to push myself to finally finish it :)
