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.

Hello Sailor

Today I am sharing another Jiggery Makery lady. She is definitely the sailors friend. I coloured her with my copics and mounted the image onto a card which had been covered with silver  mirri and a blue paper. Adele , who is the designer at Jiggery Makery has also designed a sheet full of sayings with a marine theme. I used the Ahoy there.and cut it out into a flag shape, then did the same with a print out of happy birthday. To complete the side of flags, I diecut a piece of bunting and coloured it red, white and blue. I'm always really envious when I see the Jiggery Makery ladies because they have such perfect long Even before I was in the wheelchair, I never had cute I always wanted to be able to wear really high high heels but at 6 foot tall it was never a good idea. Plus the fact that I would never be able to walk in them...I'm way too I do have a couple of friends that can and do wear fabulously high heels and manage to walk. My feet are always jealous. I was thinking of getting a pair of really high sexy shoes just to wear in the wheelchair..after all I wouldn't have to even try to walk in there's an idea to What this shoes may follow.

This week I have received a couple of surprise presents. I am so lucky to have such wonderful friends. The best one in Jeffreys opinion is a grey furry cat bed.As soon as I unwrapped it...he was in it. Now this isn't a big bed but he convinced Reg to join him and there was more dog and cat hanging out than was so funny. I managed to get a photo, so I will show you tomorrow. So many people have seemed surprised that all my animals will lie together...I must share some pictures with you come the winter can sometimes hardly see Reg because of the amount of cats on always have, I'm not convinced that Jeff even knows he is a cat. He behaves more like a dog..running to catch dog treats. Show him a cat biscuit and he'll show you an unhappy face.

I'm hoping for a quiet week end with lots of crafting. That's my plan. I've had lots of upsets this week and just fancy crafting and planning future projects.Well the coffee is calling and today I'm really thirsty...the truth is I need a caffeine So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
