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

Valerie's Gift

Today we celebrated my best friend, Valerie's birthday :)

I thought of her when I saw this kit on The French Needle's website because she loves little boxes. It didn't come with any trim, so I found this black and white gingham at the fabric store. When it comes to "finishing," I really procrastinate, but I just love how it turned out!

And I just love it! She makes me think of Eliza Doolittle. The trim is such a perfect choice too and really sets it off.
