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

Convent's Herb Garden/Chatelaine

FINALLY I finished the final put together on this beautiful design. Its been sitting in my corner for years~~I don't know why I procrastinated it so much! I had my girlfriend, Valerie put it together for me and I just had to stuff it and stitch it closed.

This was the first Chatelaine garden I've ever done. It was such fun to stitch because each side is different in stitches and colors than all the other sides. The photo looks a 'lil washed out, but its stitched on Lavender Bliss Belfast, which is such a delicate and pretty color.

My new kitten couldn't resist being near those tassles! (uh oh...)

Ohhhh....beautiful stitching and finishing. It looks GORGEOUS.
Can't resist telling you the comment of my husband while he looked over my shoulder why I was so enthousiastic. His comment was: "That's one expensive pillow for the kitty cat!" Men!!!!
