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

Castles in the Air part 4

Well, here it is, all caught up!

Of course, I have to do things MY WAY. Since I'm stitching on white, I just couldn't make my water fountain have white I found a nice Rainbow Gallery petite Treasure Braid in a nice light blue. Just sparkley enough to resemble water with the sun shining on it.

I've only stitched one side of the fuschias. They are soooooooooo beautiful up close. I was so excited stitching them! I think I'm going to make the other side's fuschias the same color since my other colors would make them blue and we have blue peacocks... That's why I'm thinking more blue wouldn't look as nice as more pink. But I will hold off on them a bit, just to make sure thats a good idea.
I did add another braid when I saw that my peacocks needed some bronze color in their feathers.

It's absolutely fabulous!
I love peacocks. I love the sparkle you added in their feathers.
I feel like it's certain that there will be peacocks on the other sides as well, but I wonder if they will be different colors.
I am so far from being caught up.
