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...

little fairy girl
Here's a little fairy girl I'm working on. She was the freebie kit in Cross Stitch Gold many months back.
I thought it would be easy to stitch her over one.
And it is, except for it was charted over two.
So I really had to fiddle with the backstitching so her face didn't look odd.
There isn't much to her, so it shouldn't be long before I finish her.
I am stitching her on a 32 count Belfast that is a very pale greenish. I forget the "real" name for it.
