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

Happy Holiday Weekend

I've got an update for you!
See, I really *have* been doing a bit of stitching. With kitten in lap, as you can see from below. She's learning properly to lay in the lap and not bother my thread.  (I only had to extract her hanging body and needle-like claws once from my picture). haha

It was my birthday on the fourth. This was really a nice birthday. I must say it was the most nicest one I've maybe ever had. The cards I received were so touching.  And lots of nice messages on my facebook page (which I never go to, but think now I must just to say thank you to everyone). I guess I must have been nice this year! lol

Next week makes the one year makes that my mom died. sigh
I miss her but I'm doing ok. I'm just sure she visits me all the time.  :)

Happy Birthday to you Narita! Oh how special. My sister and grandmother birthdays are also on the 4th. Nannie turned 100 and we had a grand party. Your sampler is beautiful. Glad to hear you had a happy celebration. Angel is precious.
love Annette

Happy Belated Birthday. Fantastic stitching and such a cute kitty.

I'm sure your Mum is wathing over you and guiding your needle.

A belated happy birthday to you!
Your kitten is such a lovely thing! But white ... I hope she won't get herself in a mess! LOL!!!
Your Lady Elinor is getting along fine - love the colours!
Have a great day!
