Dona Dorothea Gazano y Garcia

Dona Dorothea

I fell in love with this sampler the first time I saw it and I am going to start my challenge with her.

There are so many details that appeal.

I am going to kit her up with AVAS but have yet to decide on the fabric. I will post as soon as I do.

My WIP is SDW circa 1710 which I am stitching with Michele, Elaine, Krista, Shannon and Robyn.

SDW Band Sampler

We try to stitch once a week and after four weeks I have reached the fourth page.

I hope, if all goes to plan to finish the flower and vase this weekend.

Looking forward to seeing what you are going to stitch.

Nicola, you've done marvelous job setting up this blog. Now my fingers are itchy and I can't wait for my kits to arrive.

Nicola said...

The credit for the blog should go to Jo, a group blog was beyond me.

I love her design.

Krista said...

Dona Dorothea is one of my faves too, not sure which one I will start with yet. This will be a fun journey!

Margaret said...

Oh nice! I have Dona as a WIP. lol! Perhaps I'll pick her up again during the challenge! This challenge is so exciting!

What a gorgeous design to start with, Nicola. Thanks to you and Jo for setting this up.

Elaine said...

What a fantastic sampler Nicola! loads of wonderful details - another one for the list I think :)

A lovely sampler Nicola - it will be stunning.

Here is the one I have chosen - I have probably 'bitten off more than I can chew'! But...I am determined to do this.

Dona Dorothea is such a beautiful sampler. I love your SDW. The Lion reminds me of the Lion in the Narnia books lol. I know Robyn that you are doing this SAL with. She is a lovely lady:)

Dorothea is stunning Nicola! I love the bright colours and bands in this sampler. Great progress on SDW! It's a massive one!

Gorgeous samplers!!!! I have Dona Dorothea all kitted with the Attic conversion.

Dona Dorothea is such a sweet design. My eye is always drawn to the peacock in SDW - he steals the show!

I love this design. Mine got pushed down in my basket but it is going to be my first choice to start on for the SAL. I think it's great I won't be along stitching on mine!
