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

SCA gift

Here's a scissor pouch and fob I stitched up for the local SCA group. It needed to be "period accurate." I was happy to find out the biscornu was first seen in the 1500's, so it was an appropriate way to finish my fob. (I wanted it to be different than all the others)

This looks fantastic. Very unique and absolutely beautiful. Love those beads as well. Congrats with the lovely finish.

Hello from Michigan. I just bought a Bicornu pattern (simple) and I am going to try and do cross stitch for the very first time. I love your Bicournu and Fob. Gorgeous. Hugs Judy
