Celtic Valentines

True love is when you put someone on a pedestal, and they fall – but you are there to catch them. Anonymous

He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

Had I the heavens’ 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.

William Butler Yeats, Irish, 1865-1939

Don’t even get me started about today. A lot of people get emotional. I wish they rename it as Dark Chocolate Day. But who am I to complain? This world is filled with lonely people looking for someone to fill that void. I think the problem here is that we look. Why can’t we just sit still and appreciate what’s already there? Sometimes we forget simple act of kindness because we are to caught up with our hangups and histories. We forget the people who helped shape our lives and who were there along the way.  It’s Hollywood that makes today depressing. Because if you think about it, it isn’t. I think if we just turn around we already have something. We just forget to take time to appreciate it.Think about it.

Some Celtic pieces stitched for my friend Jose Rommel Labatos who lives in The Philippines. Jose writes a Celtic music blog so the Celtic theme was ideal. He chose the bookmark aida fabric from a choice of colours, it’s the first time I’ve created a home-made bookmark.

  1. Fantastic Christi! Thank you for this Valentines gift for me. And this goes to everyone who doesn’t have a partner and feel sad because Hallmark cards and Hollywood taught them life isn’t complete without those. Well today goes to the musicians, music lovers, our parents, our best friends and the people who inspired and brought out the best in us!!!
