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...

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.
