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

Blackbird Designs #30

My mother passed on in July and I have been busy going through her things. She has left me so many treasures! I love it. At least I am finding nice things to put a smile on my face. I think I shall never need to buy another piece of fabric, needles, SCISSORS!, QSnaps--ALL sizes, DMC, lap frame or chart for as long as I live! She has left me many things that are just over half-way stitched. This is one of them. I did not particularly want to put initials in the 2nd circle. So I asked my friend, Valerie what could I put instead. The moment she saw the chart, the words came in her mind "make us sing." I thought it was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!!

You are so lucky and blessed by being inherited with such treasure!
There are enough remaining onto your hands to remembering by!

And Sampler is just wonderful!

All my best!

I agree - Make Us Sing is the perfect addition, balances the design, too.

Hi Narita,
It's never fun losing someone you love but ... having all those things make wonderfull memories. Each time you will go through them and stitch on it, you'll have lovely souvenirs!
It's a beautifull piece (and nice text :-).
Have a nice day!
Ann
