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.

Busy Day

Todays card is another House Mouse from the wonderful 'The House Mouse Decoupage cdrom. I just love this image of them all doing patchwork I made this very simple little card as I thought that it would be perfect for a friend who is very much into her sewing.There is so much on this cd..not just House Mouse but also Gruffies and Happy Hoppers. There is also a selection of backing papers. There is a lot of christmas backing papers which will come in very handy later in the year.

I may do a version of this card and put it in a would be perfect for the sewing room. I have been thinking a lot lately about sewing again. It has been a few years since I did any. When I am able to go through the studio, I know that half way through, lies my sewing machine. I have saved a lot of Henrys baby clothes and it was always my hope to make a quilt..perhaps I will.I will have to wait until the upset of everything has calmed down a bit. I have other sewing that I could get on with. I have lots old rather old fashioned chair covers that are all embroidered and would look lovely turned into cushion covers...that way at least you could get to enjoy all the embroidery. There is some fabulous flowers on their. Even the small ones you could use in a patchwork design. It just means that I will have to sort myself out and get on with it.

I'm having a bit of a time with myself today. I had a new tube of glue, unopened and perfect and can I find it. Not on your nelly. It seems to up and left the room. I've spent an hour so far today looking for the little beast and it has simply disappeared. I'm getting to the point where I may have to check the rubbish. I wouldn't mind that much if I had another I'm would still drive me crazy but at least I could get on with some work. I have a large project for the weekend and I need glue...ahhhh.

Well the coffee is calling and perhaps after a good dose of caffeine, I'll feel a little more human. A human who can't do any more work until she finds this blessed I hope that you all have a good until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
