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.

Jiggery Makery...Percy and Lilly

Here I am again with a design team make for the fabulous Jiggery Makery. And I'n so happy because I got to play again with the wonderful Percy and Lilly.

I coloured Percy and Lilly with my promarkers and added white dots to the hats and the scarves. I added some embellishments and a greeting that says Be Merry. I think that Percy is feeling a little merry after receiving his

It has certainly been hot today. All the cats are outside including Sprout. He is back on four legs again ...thank goodness..and I'm hoping that he doesn't get into another fight. I think that Reg is feeling his age a bit this week. He is finding it a bit hard getting upstairs but with a little encouragement he manages. The years pass so doesn't seem that long since he was being a little terror jumping the gate and going for a

Well the coffee is calling and Sparkle is I'm guaranteed a good brew. I intend to have a coffee and then go and make dinner. It has seemed a long day today but I've managed to get quite a lot of work I'm happy. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
