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

Bunny from Just Cross Stitch magazine

I love this little bunny that was designed by Janelle Geise. It was published in last month's Just Cross Stitch Magazine.

I used Whisper thread to make the bunny soft and fluffy :)

I love how it came out and I plan to put it on the top of a wooden box.

Provance thus far

Here's what I've finished in the overall picture.

I plan to remove the thread in the arches. I'm just not fond of that pinkish thread for vines. Also, I plan on using a royal blue for the flowers in the vines. I'm going to find a redish that is more vibrant for the flowers on the tops of the arches to balance the picture more.

Goodness, it sure needs ironing!! It's so large that it needs to be bunched up so it doesn't get dirty. The completed picture will be 21" x 21".

OH! I don't have any of the pretty seed beads or crystals added on yet, either. I always wait until the end to put those on. They really bring the picture alive with their extra colors and prettieness!

(is that a word?)

Provance Corner with detail

Well, so far I have one corner finished. Yay!!

Here is the design for the bottom.

I inverted it so that when its on my wall, I won't be looking at an upside down house.

I also altered the color of the flowers on the bottom left using a varigated silk with pink & peach. the door was "supposed" to be left white, but I decided I wanted color in mine.

Here's the one that will be at the 3:00 space

Here's the picture that will be in the top part of the design.

Its been nearly a year since I started working on this ever so large project! I've made a few changes to the colors (as I like to make it more "mine"). But here are some current pictures.
