He wishes for the Cloths of Heaven
Had I heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and 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
I love this poem, especially the last line. Sometimes I feel that I have had a herd of elephants stampeding all over my dreams, but it still doesn’t stop me from dreaming!
It has been a while since I last posted, so I am breaking myself in gently by keeping this fairly short. In recent weeks I have had a really enjoyable time making handmade notebooks and journals. Learning a new craft is always exciting and because these items are small I hopefully will find some storage space for them! I sort of got carried away because so many ideas of what I could do came at me like a flood!
This is the first notebook that I have listed in my shop. It is made from some embroidered silk fabric that I found in my stash. I hadn’t used the fabric, and immediately I thought it would be perfect for a notebook cover.
I have no idea if my new range of notebooks or journals will sell and the irony of making them is not lost on me. Why am I making these? Most people who are in the internet are sharing their lives on line – including myself! But, I am sure there are a few die hards who still like to write in notebooks and journals scribbling their thoughts, ideas, poetry, shopping lists, sketches, photos – I was a great one for writing “Things to do” endlessly in notebooks and always carried one around with me!
We shall see. I shall be listing more in the coming days so keep checking my Folksy shop, as I have some beauties lined up!
Well the good news is that this notebook has sold on the first day that I listed it, so that is why there is no photo link!!!
