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.

JB-Crafting Supplies.....Using Your Stash

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. I have made a number of cards (featured on their blog), and have made them using my stash. I was looking at my peeloff collection. For the card above I chose to use this lovely peeloff of a Chinese figure. I stuck the peeloff onto some white card and coloured the image with my promarkers. I also added some gold edged cherry blossom and a vase. I have coloured the figure in golds and reds as these are the colours of prosperity. To see more cards, please pop over to the JB-Crafting Supplies. While you're there, why not check out the wonderful range of crafting goodies that Julie can supply.

The wind is raging through and round the mountains today. Surprisingly the bigger cats have all decided to go out and run about in the wind. But don't think for a minute that it's quiet in the house. Three kittens racing about make more noise than you can's sounds as if there is a herd of wild creatures running Nicademus has just come in to check that he hasn't missed any food that may have been given out.Even though it's not's so cold here today..the wind seems to be raging in a different direction than normal and is hammering the front of the normally goes past the house, running in what seems to be a circle running round and round the valley floor. It can get so loud it sounds as if a train is going past the window and you can almost time it coming round again. But today is different. It's hitting the window all the time and I can honestly say it's bitterly cold. It's the sort of weather that my Grandfather would's even too cold to snow. That expression sounded all wrong to me as a child but now I find myself saying the same

I'm hoping to start some sewing tomorrow. I have done some but need to do some pressing. Yes, I know many of you have had a good laugh at the thought of me and an iron..but it's coming out of hiding I'm working on a patchwork cover for the couch and have sewn quite a lot, which now need pressing. Also I'm hoping to begin another one..I do like to have more than one project on the go at the same time. As soon as I've got to a point there is something nice to share..I will. It can be a little trying when you're trying to sew on the machine and the kittens want to join in. As usual, they're just being nosey.

Well the coffee is calling and then I have to make some inserts for some my friends will know that's another thing that I dislike doing. Mind you thinking about it..I don't mind once I have's just the thought of doing At least I always feel virtuous when I've So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
