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.

Inspiration Post for SLS Lines

Todays make is a design team make for the fabulous SLS Lines. I have used this wonderful Day of the Dead Calavera. As soon as I saw this image, I was struck by just how wistful she looked. Normally I would have coloured her with bright colours, but for some reason I felt the need to colour her in pastels. I love the look on her face and thought that it fitted well with the quote that I had found. Perhaps I was thinking of Henry when I was making this..every day is still difficult and I don't think that the pain goes just become different.Some days it still hits me like a wall and I have to concentrate on my breathing just to get through. I still hear something and think oh I must tell Henry and then the realisation hits me. ..again.

So if you pop over to the SLS Lines you can read my inspiration post..I'm a little nervous as it is the first one that I've done.As most of you know..I'm not the worlds best with computers..I can waffle on for ever but when it comes to anything technical..I'm rubbish.Some instructions I still have to have written down and have to follow matter that I've now done it loads of, I use the excuse that with everything else in my, cats, sewing..there is just no room for anything

Well I think it's time for a coffee..I'm only running on one so far today..but I can feel the I will be back tomorrow with another make.So until then..take care and happy crafting.
