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.....Victorian Sewing Box

Today's creation is a design team make for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. It is a Victorian Sewing box kit from Pinflair. It all folds up into a box and is just so handy for keeping a small repair kit in. I don't know about you but when needed, I can never find a needle and cotton...well I will now have a place. The kit, material and anything else you need is available from Julie at JB-Crafting Supplies. For more details about the box, please pop over to the JB-Crafting Supplies blog.

As you can see it all folds up and has a lid, which means it can sit neatly somewhere on a shelf..just to be got down when you need to make a repair. There is enough room that you could also keep a small pair of sewing scissors in there..they're another thing that you can never find when you need I have to admit to having a small scissor I'm very protective of my scissors..I have paper crafting ones, sewing and needlework ones, kitchen ones and general household ones..and never shall they be used for the wrong It's bad I know but it was my Grandmothers insistence that each has a job and they will not be used for the wrong thing. It makes me laugh..I think it was because she did such a lot of was a rule that her sewing scissors were never used for anything else.

It's a lovely day here in the mountains..the sun is shining and the sky is blue. I can see the mountains from my chair and all the different shades of green are just beginning to show. I'm in process of waiting for my tablets to kick in and then I'm planning to sort my corner out. As it's the place that I do all my work..we get to a point that you can't move for all the crafting stuff that is piled up. I'm in the middle of sorting all my embellishments out. So I thought to myself that I will get on with it this afternoon. For those of you that know my will know the trauma that I'm going to end up Tomorrow is down as sort the bathroom out day..the kittens have turned it into a cats playground and I've decided to do it. They have spread tissues everywhere, pulled stuff out of the airing cupboard and generally caused chaos. No more I

Well the coffee is calling and then when I'm caffeine fuelled, I shall start in my corner. It will end up being a bit of a lucky dip..who knows what I will So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
