Is the moon tired........?

"Is the moon tired? She looks so pale beneath her misty veil".

I took these photos last night and they reminded me of a poem I learned as a very small child. Sadly, I can't remember any more of it, or who wrote it. Maybe someone out there in Blogland has the answers.



I've been working on my little book pages and here are two more. The one on the left is waiting to be stitched but I think the other one is finished.


I can't decide if these are finished or not. Sometimes a little tinkering does the trick and sometimes it just makes things worse! To tinker, or not to tinker. That is the question!!

That's a pretty fragment of a poem Heather. I wasn't expecting to see the full moon last night as we had been covered by cloud all day, but at 10.30 there she was, smiling down and no cloud to be seen.

I like your book pages, I think they look finished - less is more as they say...

Call me old- fashioned, but your little flowers are what embroidery needles are made for.

It's amazing, Heather. I have a moon photo very similar to this. I'll put on my blog, a pic of what I did with it in Photoshop combining two photos.(when I find them!!)
I love yor flower pages. I have never believed I can draw, but am manageing to do some flowers that don't completely embarass me.

Your wild flower pages are just beautiful Heather - they will make a gorgeous little book.

I wish I could look as beautiful as your moon when I'm feeling tired Heather. I'm glad Allabitrandom found the poem for you. It's very frustrating trying to remember words that just will not come to mind.
