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

Really beautiful work - and a wonderful gift for a stitching friend - I'm sure every stitch will be appreciated.
Nice finishing as well!

BTW, I love the quotes on your blog page! The 'cloths of heaven' poem is "He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven" by William Butler Yeats. = )
