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

wow...

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...

It is the 'Marquoir Bleu & Rouge' by Gigi et Carinne on a French site. I've stitched it some years ago. I can't find a link to the site with the pattern. But now you know what to search. The ladies om the picture did a wonderful job!
