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

I finally finished the finishing! I filled it with a separate pouch inside and inside that pouch I a bit of lavender (that I snipped and hung to dry) and bunches of copper bee bees for weight.
There's a side view of it. I have a couple other weights. They work really well on my lap frame. Or when I am doing the beading and I want to weigh the larwe QSnap down on the table....holds it in place quite nicely.
And there is the back. Maybe you can tell that its a monogram of my initials, NT. I just love the book I got it from. It has every combination possible. Its a Dover book and the very, very BEST!
