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

Silver Lining Iris

My mother stitched this iris for me because its pink and I love pink and her name is Iris and she loves them. She has all the Silver Lining iris's. I'm embarrassed to say I've had this in my "cupboard" for a few years now, but Mother has been in the hospital for the past 6+ weeks and I figured I just couldn't live with myself if she died and I didn't frame her picture, show it to her, and hang it up in my bedroom. I picked out the frame last week and ordered the mat and put it together last night. I just love how it turned out and can't wait to show it to her.
