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

My gift

Our Bay Area Sampler Guild (BASG) does a gift exchange each year. I drew the name of someone I really really like! So I sort of knew what I thought she might like.

I found this gorgeous fabric (picture just does NOT do it justice, unfortunately) and since she is Jewish, I found the Hamsa Hand chart. And then I went about matching up the colors to the fabric.

THEN, I came across this really neat purse frame handle and thought to myself, "Hmmmmmmmmm, I've never made a purse before, but wouldn't it make a cool gift if I could figure it out?!"

So I did!
