little grey donkey...



i'm nearly finished with this little spring donkey. i had intended for her to have a little baskets of flowers, but i came across this vintage embroidery i had nearly forgotten about. it seems to suit her. it is such a beautiful piece of hand embroidery on the loveliest cream colored wool. i was so excited when i found it at a "junktique" sale before christmas. i just need to finish attaching it and she will be ready to go!

i'll have to make another with baskets:)

i love that embroidery too. the other half is laid out to make a pillow... once i clean my office, after i finish cleaning the living room, once i get back from taking the kids to the park and then i have to make dinner i make dinner.... oi, it's never ending!
