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

Another something

You know me...busy working on all kinds of things.
This owl was something I found in my mother's things. And my dad loves owls, (well so do I) so I decided to stitch it onto a tote bag for him because he uses them and I wanted to make it into something useful.

Wait 'til I show you what I've been working on all year! I couldn't share it with you while I was stitching it because it was to be a gift for my daughter. Its what I did with that special fabric that was handpainted, dyed for me. It came out perfect!

In the meantime, here's a happy picture of us at Christmas.
