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

Herbularius part 3

Herbularius is coming right along.

The colors are gorgeous.
The textured stitches in the pillars look really dimentional.

I used my creative license to add my own version of backstitching on the pillars. I just wanted them to be more outlined than was called for.

I'm really enjoying stitching this piece and I can barely set it down.
I keep thinking to myself "oh just a FEW more stitches...!" haha
