Alphabet Club Catch Up - R

Hello, lovelies! Another week, another letter to catch up on - thankfully, a letter much easier than the 'Q' we had last time.

So my stitching for this post is this cute little rubber duck (coincidentally, that would be 'Quietscheente' in German - if only I had though of this last week!) from Mill Hill, and my word of the week is...well actually, I thought this would be much easier than 'Q', but I really can't think of any funny or interesting words, so it's going to be an expression instead - 'Rad ab', literally 'wheel off'. If someone has a 'Rad ab' (is missing a wheel), he or she is kind of crazy or idiotic. Another way to say that (and on the same theme, too!) would be 'nicht alle Tassen im Schrank haben', 'to be missing some cups in the cupboard'. On this basis, some people (not me...nooo never me) will think up more creative variations, like someone is missing some keys from their keyboard, or some chocolates from their box, you get the picture ;)


  1. Well that is typical that you find the perfect design one letter late! You must be one sandwich short of a pic-nic LOL

  2. Great rubber duck! "A few bricks short of a load" and "The elevator doesn't go all the way to the top" are a few I've heard.

  3. Sweet duckie!

  4. ... und hier hast du mich offiziell überholt :))) Ich müsste auch mal wieder einen Blogpost schreiben, aber ich komme mit dem Sticken der kleinen Häuschen nicht nach. Na ja, vielleicht demnächst mal ...
