The Canterbury Bell Fairy

Wednesday, August 10, 2011 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »
Bells that ring from ancient towers-
Canterbury Bells-
Give their name to summer flowers-
Canterbury Bells!
Do the flower-fairies, playing,
Know what those great bells are saying?
Fairy, in your purple hat,
Little fairy, tell us that!

"Naught I know of bells in towers-
Canterbury Bells!
Mine are pink or purple flowers-
Canterbury Bells!
When I set them all a-swaying,
Something, too, my bells are saying,
Can't you hear them--ding-dong- ding--
Calling fairy-folk to sing?

This was originally a cover kit, but I stitched it over one on 25 count which makes it really small and pretty. It's only about 2 inches by 2 inches.

Finished 10th August 2011
