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.....Flower time

Today's makes are all design team makes for the fabulous Jiggery Makery. I did try to share all this with you all but BT were just not playing. I don't know whether it's the influx of second homers that affects my broadbrand so badly but Friday night can be the worst time ever. For my makes today I have used the flowers that Adele has designed. The apron reminds me of one that I had made for me in the was made out of denim and a floral material. It takes me back.

For my next make I decided to make a handbag. I decided to keep to the same colours because I thought that they worked well together. And for my final make I decided to use a different one of Adele's flowers.

Both of these bags were made using different handbag templates which I have had in my stash for ages..and which I do forget about..until I have a tidy Both of the handbags are suitable to be used as gift bags as they actually work as bags and not just fronts. I think they would look lovely as wedding could make them to match in with the colours of the wedding.

The weather has certainly changed. Today it's raining and really just a normal day here in the mountains. I always think that one of the reasons I became a crafter was because it rains just so much All the cats are inside and choosing their special places to relax, apart from Rave who is determined to sit on the studio roof between showers. She has been in and out like a yo you since breakfast. I'm sure it's because she is being nosey.

Well the coffee is calling and I think that over this weekend I'm going to do some drawing...something that I haven't done for a while.I will share it if it works out. This afternoon I will be watching the youngsters Great North Run. A little baby that I held in my arms and that Henry fed his weetabix to is running. I can only wish her luck, knowing that Henry will be looking down on her. So until next time..I hope that you have a great matter what the weather...take care and happy crafting.
