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.

The Dove Cote

First let me say I'm sorry that I'm a little late's been quite a day so far..goodness knows what funny incidents are still to Todays card is another of the fantastic vintage specials from Decoupage Delights.The whole card is available to be printed straight from the cd. The image itself is two layers and the pansies have 4 layers., even the greeting has been decoupaged.

I have had a crafting crisis today..I realised that I had run out of my pinflair glue. Now I can cope with many things but running out of my glue is a huge thing to me. Especially as the nearest shop is about 40 miles away. Luckily my friend, the pa,is going up to the coast so I have begged her to get me some. The thought of spending a whole weekend with the chance to make cards has been known to drive me into a dithering After everything that has happened this year..making cards to me is a form of therapy. When Things get a little rough, at least I can lose myself in making a card.

The weather here is fantastic..I can't remember when we have had a year with so much good weather. I took Reg for a wheel and was joined by Jeff ,Rave, Tankie, Milky and then much to my joy Pinkie arrived. She had gone missing again and hadn't been home for a while. She had gone very thin again but was really pleased to see everyone. It must be the good weather that is keeping her out. I just hope that she would stay closer to home. On the way back we all sat in the shade on the road and enjoyed a quiet time..then a man appeared and said that it was the most surreal thing that he had ever seen.He just couldn't believe that there I was sat in my wheelchair surrounded by one dog and 5 cats who were all lay down round the chair. He said he had heard about it happening but couldn't believe it really happened. Who knows we may be famous

Next week I am lucky enough to be able to share some more of the Jiggery Makery ladies with you. I love the sassy attitude that I can give them and I will be putting a link on my blog to her shop so you can purchase  the digital images if you want to. So get prepared for some sassiness next

Well the coffee is calling and I'm thinking of doing some baking. Quiche for dinner I think with new potatoes and salad. And maybe some scones..for a have been making them for weeks trying to get back to the way I used to bake and I'm nearly there but not quite. I think by the time I finally get them right I will never want another one. So until tomorrow take care and happy crafting.
