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

Flower Power so far

Here's the big picture of what I've done so far. The colors are just lovely in person and I've really enjoyed stitching this.

Crossed Wing

Happy New Year!!!!

This past summer I came across a lovely design. A HUGE design with flowers and hummingbirds and butterflies. It was quite lovely. AND THEN... I saw someone's blog that was stitching it on a hand dyed fabric. And that hand dyed fabric was actually done FOR this design, by the actual designer of this lovely flower garden.

Quickly I got on the phone and called her to see if she was still doing that since this was a few years old and YES! She ordered fabric for me (a very large piece of 32 ct. linen... somewhere in the ball park of 28x50"-- did I mention it was huge?) I dont even remeber the finished size, maybe its 20x36?

Today I will show you my fabric and the design. Today or sometime this week I'll take it off the frame and snap some smaller shots and post them.
