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 closeups

I'm back to working on Flower Power. I am so loving this gorgeous design. And the fabric! Well, that just makes it ever so much more lovely!!!!

Here's the latest little butterfly close up. And a close up of the pretty columbine.

Tiny Hummingird Picture

I was inspired to do this little picture last year. It is done on 32 count polysilk over one, using 2 threads to give it the dimentional look.

The polysilk is clearish, so I had to be careful not to have any threads show through.
The finished size of the center design is only 2 1/2 inches.

So distracting!

LOL Look at those teeth!

I love my Siamese, Kidden.

He is just so cute. I have to keep stopping what I'm doing and love on him.

Quadrile first 2

I did it! I took a picture! lol :)

These are the first 2 sides of a 4 sided ornament.

I sat by the fire yesterday and watched Netflix and stitched the day away. Oh what a great way to spend a Sunday...

Busy me!

Its so true there just aren't enough hours in the day to do all the things I want to do! (Especially sewing things) And sometimes I will lay in my bed as I am coming awake, thinking about what I will do this day and I make all these plans for SUCH productivity then I sit down here at my computer and sip my coffee and one thing leads to another and before I know it, I'm out of time! (And I've not accomplished much, either...but I HAVE seen all the new things I'd just love to stitch!!! lol)

I just found out yesterday that one of my dear friends reads my blog. Actually, let me rephrase... CHECKS my blog regularily to see what I've added. It came to mind that I do not update it near often enough.

I've got this thing in my head that whenever I post, that I MUST put a new picture. And pictures take effort, (to TAKE the picture and more harder: to DO something big enough to take a picture of!) :)

I love pictures. Pictures say a lot. So today I will take a picture. But not post it right now. Because... I haven't taken it yet. And just now I will make this into a "pictureless post."

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend
