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...

A gift for a friend
I almost forgot to show you a Christmas gift I made for a friend of mine. It looks much bigger than it is. I stitched it one over one on 25 ct (I love 25 ct over one!) I think the frame is 4".
Its mounted on one of those painting canvases and placed on a tiny easel. (I stained the wood so it would match the brown on the roof top)
I think I found the design in the Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue. The only change was to outline the banner and bird--they just blended into the blue too much. Plus I didn't stitch my initials in the upper corner, I added another heart.
