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...

Blackbird Designs Rose Garden
I found this fabric in the shop that was so pretty that I just had to have it. But I didn't know what I would do with it, I just knew I loved it. Pink and roses. Can't go wrong!
Then I came across this pretty little chart by Blackbird Designs and thought it "could" go together somehow. So I pulled out some threads and did my best to match colors. Variegated thread can look so pretty but its challenging to work with (to me) because I don't care for the "lined look" that one can get while stitching with it. I'm not sure yet what I will make out if these, but the fabric can be a lining. Its not a small design stitched up (probably 3x5...?) That was my mini-diversion piece from my monthly Herbularius, massively large design (which I am almost finished with!)
