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

Sampler update for Bay Area Sampler Guild

Here's a quick little update.
I didn't take the time to pull out the ironing board and heat up the iron, because I just wanted to snap a quick pic and post.
I really haven't spent much time on this lately.
I did take a wonderful trip (stitching in the back seat--3600 miles--and I took Dramamine so I wouldn't get nauseous--I planned stitching and stitching and stitching!) so I did get a bit done on it.

Anyway, that's what I have so far

the cake

I just had to include this here...
So, it was my birthday and my sister put the cake on the table when no human eyes were watching. My daughter and I walked by and saw it there.
With a BITE out of the corner.
 And there was my sweet puppy, Ruby. Looking like she knew something.
 Holly and I laughed and when I went to get the camera to take the picture, the guilty party moved in quickly and tried to get another bite! LOL

My girl wasn't guilty afterall.
Never assume... never believe anything you hear and only HALF of what you see!

Well, I'm going to make a good go at following through each month on posting! I have such good intentions when I start out.

Each month there is a topic to blog about.

Here it is for this month:
 "Reality or Fantasy. Which do you prefer to stitch? Figures or Abstract?"

Reality or Fantasy...

Hmmmm I like to stitch things that are intricate. That pose a challenge. That are not the "usual"
I prefer not "cutesy" things. I love pretty flowers and SPARKLE. Love the beads and the gold and silver braids. So I guess my things have a touch of the Fantasy to them.

Abract, never my thing. Makes me think Contemporary... I'm not crazy about Contemporary.

Anyways, there's my little comment for July!

 If anyone is interested, here's the info:

Happy Holiday weekend, I hope you get some stitching in. Its my birthday tomorrow!
