Donkeys...real and fabric

You've probably been wondering if I've been sewing at all. Well, I have been-a little bit. It's still very hot in my sewing room so I brought a cutting board into the living room where the air conditioner is strongest. 

A few months ago, I was sitting outside and saw our neighbors had some visitors. (We live on a hill so these neighbors are below us-the light green shrubbery is ours.)


Two donkeys and some sheep!


He's just so cute! I got inspired to try my hand at designing a donkey block (along the lines of my elephant block.) So I got out some graph paper and...


and some fabric...


So now I'm working on a donkey quilt!  Hmmm, I guess lambs are next!
