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

A gift for my dear friend, Theresa

Here is the finished product! Remember a few months back, actually, it may have been in the summer... I found this pretty fabric, then the design, then changed the colors all around to match the fabric...remember? Then I measured the finished one I already had and figured out a pattern...and changed it to make it even better. Added a magnet on the top for the scissors to rest on...and added some lavender inside to make it smell pretty. And then it took hours to figure out how to put it together. lol Anyway, I love how it turned out and if I didn't love my friend so much, I'd have kept it for myself! (isn't that what giving is all about?)
