Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Every sailor loves a pretty girl

Todays card is from an image by a very talented designer called Adele Bradwell, She creates the most amazing digi images that are becoming available from her company Jiggery Makery. All copyrights to this image and the backing paper remain her property. I have been lucky enough to get to work with some of her images and am loving every minute. I can now announce that I have accepted a position on her new design watch this space for more of Adeles fantastic art How excited am I. If you are interested in seeing more of her creations you can contact her through her facebook page Jiggery Makery. I will be putting links to her website and everything else within the next couple of weeks. I was so excited when I thought that I may get the chance to work with this very talented artist..and now I have permission to share my joy with you all.

It's very hot here today..all the cats are stretched out on the studio roof enjoying a little of a breeze from Henrys tree. I have to say that I'm going to have to get a tree surgeon out soon to sort this tree out. Henry planted two trees when he was little and one of them..I don't even know what type it is...has taken off at such a speed..I need to get something done. It is the cat tree because they all climb up it to get onto the studio roof and to the biggest cat flap in the world (the upstairs parlour window..which is by my chair). So I will let you know how all that turns out. The other tree that Henry planted was a rowan which is by the front gate. That has been very slow growing but it does seem to have had a spurt this year. It is covered with berries which is supposed to foretell a bad winter.We shall have to see and I can see the need to purchase some longjohns in Anyone that visits me and tells me that they are cold, I tell them to get some longjohns and a good vest. It does make it a bit difficult being that I am a lady of a certain age and  I have an inbuilt central heating system that seems to be set on very I do spent a lot of my time in front of a fan and have been known to have my window  open when it's -10 At least it's saving me money on heating.

What a day I've had today..I had a visit from social services. Ever since Henry passed I think that I'm danger from myself. That I may go and throw myself off a mountain. I just can't get it through to them that I have no intention of doing anything  and that if I the hell would I get up the mountain anyway. They told me today that I was a very funny woman..did they mean funny haha or funny peculiar? They suggested that I should do standup comedy but didn't get it when I said it would have to be sit down. But it's always worth bearing in mind..I'm never one to miss an opportunity. It seems that they will continue to visit forever...I'm sure that it's a nice trip out for them. I just wished they liked Reg a little more...he is used to people coming in and giving him a fuss and can't understand why they don't..but it's their loss. I think more of Reg than I do of them...he makes a lot more

Well the coffee is calling and thankfully I now have some. I thought that I wasn't going to get any yesterday..tesco phoned..the van had broken down and couldn't tell me when it was coming. It finally arrived after 5...I have to say that the caffeine hit was don't think I shut up until bedtime. So I'm off for another caffeine until tomorrow take care and happy crafting
