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

Sharon's gift

I surprised my friend Sharon with a little tiny needlebook. The design was on the cover of the book, Elizabethan Needlework. Love that book! I stitched it on 32 ct, over one. Had to, otherwise it would've been took large. The verse on the inside says "All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today." And I chose that because the needles we use create our flowers for tomorrow. The writing came out so tiny, one practically needs a magnifier! lol
