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

British small

A little (literally) gift I made for Diane, my dad's gf's bd. She loves British things and I came across this "small cushion" chart that was a pdf on Etsy, designed by Sheena Rogers Designs. She has some really great things in her Etsy shop.
They are planned to be needlepoints, so I chose blue fabric and eliminated a lot of tiny X's!
(And of course I added gold Rainbow Gallery, because I must use gold...) Oh and I made "a mistake" and did the center flower outline in black instead of grey and when I discovered that was a mistake, I was quite happy with it because I feel it really shows the design better that way. Plus I knew I was going to put it in a black fame...
