Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind, and dance upon the mountains like a flame!
~W.B. Yeats

Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams...

~W.B. Yeats

My bigggest piece EVER!

When I saw this design of Queen Eleanor, I just had to do it.

But oh my! Was it EVER a big undertaking. There were 14 pages to it and not a single bit of fabric was left uncovered.

The design was downloaded from this place:

I'm pretty sure I won't ever do one of these again. lol

It hangs in my living room. I ever so love the way the shading came out. Its beautiful in person.
