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.

A Snowflakes Promise....New Challenge

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at A Snowflakes Promise. A new challenge has just begun and will run for the following fortnight. The theme for this challenge is Anything goes or with a twist of love...after all Valentines Day is fast approaching.

We are lucky enough to have been sponsored for this challenge by the fabulous team over at Bugaboo Stamps. It was hard for me to pick a design with all the wonderful images available but then I spotted this one with the owls. Of course I had to colour them orange in memory of Henry...everywhere I look this month is coloured orange. I thought that this was such a simple happy design..if I was going to send a valentines...this would be it.

I'm finding it rather hard to type this blog as Simon is determined to sit on my left elbow and is padding as hard as he can and purring at the top of his He is not being moved whatever I try. Ever since Jeffrey showed him the way to the bedroom, he has demanded a place on the bed every night and will not give his space up for a bigger cat. He has even (just like Jeffrey) taken up begging off the dog walker..requesting a bit of gravy bone.

Well the coffee is calling and then I need to measure the bathroom window...I'm going to make a panel for the window. I'm making it out of a thin cotton with some blue embroidery on it. I'm hoping to cover the window but that it will still let light in. The trouble with the window is that it is overlooked by next door and I don't want to give the lovely gentleman next door a bad shock every time I take a I still find it strange that I live in the middle of nowhere and yet my window on that side is directly opposite next doors. In a lot of ways it is worse on the other side of the bedroom window looks out on a brick wall. But at least it means that my bedroom is dark...I've found in life that you have to count your matter how strange. It's my favourite dinner, salad potatoes and salad...I'm looking forward to it already. So until next time...take care and happy crafting.
