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

WIPocalypse: Eleanor of Aquitaine

I've been working away on her alllll month long.  And now that I have the sides finished (remember, I am not stitching the entire picture, just the pretty part) I could actually be "done" whenever I want. But I do want to keep stitching her and so, I am not done.

My focus is going to switch for a bit to the new Bay Area Sampler Guild's Sampler chart. So you won't see as much progress each month on her, but I will keep her out.  (You know, once they go in their box...there's no telling how long they will stay there!)

Happy Stitching my friends!!!!

WOW Elanor is stunning!
I will be getting started on our BASG sampler soon too. I have fabric & threads ready but I am still not for sure if I want all DMC or maybe a few of the silks too??? What have you decided?
love Annette
