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...

The Garden Plot Thickens
Just this very morning I put the first stitches into my newest project: The Garden Plot Thickens, by Amy Mittens. Its a beautiful design with a lot of blackwork (in colors) and other lovely stitches, complete with a mystery story written by the designer. Looks like lots of fun. I'm posting a finished picture of it, done by my friend, Ria. She did a gorgeous job on hers and inspired me to do my own. The picture I'm adding is just one small section of it because its very large--I'm thinking about 36" long.
