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 Silver Lining iris

In my newly organized stash, I  found this iris that my mom had started. This is how it was last week when I pulled her out and put her on the Q snaps.

I'll post next time I move it around.

I'm feeling so productive!
Enjoy your weekend,  I already am

Silver Lining iris

My friend, Valerie came over and we organized my stash...
She  had us gather together all the charts...and put them in one spot.
Then she had us gather together all the UFOs... and put them in a different spot.
And then all the kits--not started at all...
And then the finished things that still needed to be made into something.

I pulled out this iris that my mom had started and worked half of. (My mom was a Gemini and she loved to start things, do half of them and then off to the next exciting thing!)

I finished it up.
I love that she put dates on the chart of when she started it.
This was one of the very first pieces she did, back in 2003.

I sure miss my mom but its really nice to be able to finish some of her things.

Just Nan

I finished!
And, if you can tell, I added lots of sparkle! lol
I think what I'm going to do now is figure out how to make it into a little purse thing.
I purchased the Just Nan Mermaid chart, Under the Sea or something like that...Siren? I forget (its in the other room...) and I want to take parts of it and make it work. Like...the mermaids could be the flap...

We'll see!
Oh I know... I could add a screen shot. lol

There we go

Just Nan Mermaid Heart

Here's a pretty something I'm working on.
I just have the outer border to do now.

I think it needs some Kreinik and or Rainbow Gallery sparkle braids!
(It just wouldn't be "mine" without those added sparkles)
Those will  be next. For sure.

Happy Easter my friends
