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

Part 11 already. WHERE did that year go? Only one more part and then... ALL THE BEADS Such a pretty design. But gosh, there are 52 points to stitch around the border. FIFTY TWO!!!!! I set it in my mind that there might as well be 50 million trillion. That way when I stitch it, I won't have in my mind that I can just "whip it out" really fast. Its like when I take a trip somewhere, if I think of it as a LONG... WAYS... AWAY, then before I knowit, I'm there! I did make a little change in the outer-ist border: instead of stitching regular 'ole cross stitches with that pretty varigated silk, I chose to stitcha Long Armed Cross (some refer to it as a Long Legged Cross). It resembles a Heringbone stitch and just looks so pretty, especially up close.

I'm also amazed that this project is so close to the end already... and I haven't even started it yet, lol. That's a great idea, the long arm crossed stitch. Have a nice weekend.
