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

JBW Squirrel

I just love those tiny little JBW charts. I think I have a thing about them, wanting to collect them! I have the deer, a bunny, 2 chickens, the squirrel, probably a bird (because I just love birds!) and probably the cat (because we all KNOW how I feel about kitty cats...) The fun thing about those designs is there are pictures within each of the design. If you look closely, you can find an acorn, another squirrel, a basket, lots of things. I stitched this tiny little squirrel on 32 count over one and it was super fast. I think I did it in 2 days. lol The question now is what shall I do with it? How shall I "finish" it? What shall I make it into?
