Dona Dorothea - Another Update

Hi Everyone,

Wow!  Another day or so and Fall will be here.  Hard to believe, but our weather has felt like Fall.  Cool mornings and evenings.  It has been beautiful.

I have managed to construct another building in the Dona Dorothea sampler…a red barn.  And, added a dog as well.  A few more things to fill in (another dog, another stag) and then it will be on to the lower rows that are so, so pretty.

Not sure how quickly that will happen though.  I’m heading to FL on Tuesday for work and Dona is just too large to take along.  Instead I’m going to take two smalls I can start (if I can find the time) – both recent market releases and cute fall patterns.  But with full day meetings and evening dinners, I’m not sure I will find the time or energy to pick up a needle.  Luckily I’ve booked a massage for Tuesday afternoon – yay!!

Here are pictures of where Dona stands at the moment.  First an overall shot and then close-ups of the barn and dog (strange looking dog I think).  It looks like the checkerboard stag is stepping on that poor dog!

Hope everyone has a great week!
