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

Queen Eleanor update

Its been quite some time since I posted a picture of the queen. I don't think I had any of her horse done last time I posted her picture. I really want to work on her again...but I've a couple, no, THREE other things that must be done before I can indulge in her. I love the colors, really pretty in person.

Will you please LOOK at these ladies and their amazing samplers?! I wish I could remember where I found this picture, I should have listed it in the file name so I could give them proper credit. But for now, lets just admire this incredible set of stitchers with their amazing samplers. Have you ever done anything so large? Would you even attempt it? I'm pretty sure I would not...
