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

Blackberry Lane Bat Needlebook

I forgot to show you the finished little bat!
I added a felt to the inside and padded it, like a real tummy! (sorta)
The only thing I did different was I scattered filament here and there so it would be "glisteny" and I added those beads, rather than beading all along the edge of the fabric (too busy for my taste)
My mom kitted him and had started stitching him. I just had to finish him, considering how cute he was going to come out.
