The Lady of Shalott

Click on above link if you would like to read the whole poem... you better get yourself a cup of tea or something stronger.. you are going out and you maybe some time.
Below is the verse where you will find the words which have been used on this fabulous ATC created by Linda a very talented crafter, it is truely gorgeous, I can tell you that with hand on heart as I am proud to have it in my collection... oh! wasn't I the lucky one.
Part 3 verse 13
She left the web, she left the loom, She made three paces through the room, She saw the water-lily bloom, She saw the helmet and the plume, She looked down to Camelot. Out flew the web and floated wide;
The mirror cracked from side to side; "The curse is come upon me," cried The Lady of Shalott.
Linda has given a brief outline to the famous poem....
...The Lady of Shalott was cursed and imprisoned on an island.
She wove a colourful web on a loom.
She looked at the world through a reflection in a mirror.
She wasn’t allowed to cast her eyes on the knights who rode by on their way to Camelot.
One day Sir Lancelot rode by and HE WAS GORGEOUS!
She couldn’t resist a look and ‘pow’ the curse was on her and her mirror cracked.
She climbed in a boat, sailed down the river and died.

All of that for just one look, thats worrying!!
Linda thanx for sharing that with us and for joining our ATC Club we are thrilled to have you on board.
Luv Chriss x
