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

Little Me

Another gift

Here's a little something I made for the gift exchange in my stitchery group. You know, if any of you live in the San Jose/San Francisco/Santa Cruz area and would like to join our stitchery group, do send me a message. We meet once a month and just hang out and stitch. I made the group in 2003. Its just a wonderful group of ladies, I'm sure you'd love it!

Valentines Exchange

This is a little something I stitched as an exchange gift for my stitchery group's Valentine party, this past weekend. I blanket stitched the design to a piece of wool felt and then did a little crochet edging. It 'twas the first time I crocheted anything in 20 years. lol Its nice and thick and perfect for needles. I also purchased a pair of red scissors to include with the gift. I love Valentines Day.

Swan reworked

This is a little part of Chatelaine's Evening in the Park. I reworked the swan so the neck would flow more smoothly. I just love the fancy stitches. Look at that neat woven one in the planter boxes. And the lovely stitches for the flowers. Its so much fun stitching a Chatelaine design.

Another gift

I have been busy stitching away on a gift for my daughter. In fact, its the only thing I've been stitching. I don't want to post a pic because I don't know if she will come look at my blog. (its coming out so nice though!) So that's why I've been silent... But I do have another Christmas gift to show you. I forgot to show you earlier. Its a tote bag with a puppy on it. For my friend, Cathy. She has that kind of dog. I sneaked the package into the back of her car, hid it behind her seat when she wasn't looking. haha
