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 stitched part of Eleanor of Aquitaine

Well, I am rather disappointed and discouraged just now.

I am not at all happy with the sky behind her head.

I see the yellow as too strong. I know it must be yellow so it shows her crown, but it just seems TOO yellow to me.

The prospect of picking out those little tiny stitches that are really X's that I cannot even see without the magnifier... does not make me happy in the least. and THEN trying to figure out what to do in there is perplexing as well. sigh

MAYBE it will look better when I get more stitched. Though I am doubting it. I think it just stands out too much. I dunno....
