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

For today's design team make, I have used this wonderful kit from Pinflair. It is available from Julie at JB-Crafting Supplies...alongside a wonderful selection of fabrics. I am aiming to use this box to keep my rings away from the little furry beasts..who seem to think that emptying my rings from their bowl is the greatest fun. The good thing about this box is when you are not using it..the lid goes on and you are just left with a cube.

As I've said, the kit and material are both available from Julie, along with the special book binding glue which is used to attach everything together. What I would advise getting is a glue spreader..which allows you to be more accurate and save you using too much. The only other thing that you will need is a ruler or a tape that measures in centimetres. The other great thing I love about this kit is that it allows you use whatever fabric you prefer. So many kits come with the material included..which sometimes can be a pattern you are not fond of or something that doesn't go with your own colour scheme. This way if you want it to be purple with black can have it..the sky is your limit..if you see some fabric you love...just go for it.

It's chilly here in the mountains today. The mountains were white this morning but it looks as if it has all gone now. It seems to be quiet time here at the moment..thank goodness. Because I'm in the middle of sorting everything out..the parlour looks as if it has been stirred with a It makes me tired just looking at it all. I'm so looking forward to the end stage.As I'm sat here I can hear the kittens racing up and down sounds a herd of large They have just raced in and over my computer..I will be getting really loud really soon.

Well the coffee is calling and I think I have the need for a scone.I will have to think what I want for dinner. I have absolutely no idea. Some days are like that..if I lived in a normal place , it might have been a night for a takeaway...but here in the mountains there isn't one for miles.I shall just have to get my head together and have a hunt into my never know what is lurking. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting
