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.

Left of Center.....Current Challenge

Here I am again with another design team make. On Saturday I shared an Art by Miran image for the current LOC challenge and I have been lucky enough to be able to work with another and thought that I should share it with you. The challenge runs for a week and has a Tic Tac Toe theme. The Tic Tac Toe board is featured on my blog from Saturday and is also on the LOC blog. I chose to work with pink, purple and black. I coloured this image with my Lyra watercolours.

The current challenge is sponsored by Art by Miran and The Goblyn Workshop. There are some wonderful images available from both companies and are well worth a look.

So as I'm sat here, sipping my coffee and wondering what work to do next. I'm thinking of doing a bit of baking..perhaps some scones and some sausage rolls. I'm thinking that if I did that quite soon, then I will be free to work a lot later. I am waiting for some crafting things to come in the post but when I was reading the details of delivery times..I learnt something which quite shocked me. Accordingly Royal Mail say that First Class delivery is 3 days. Now I must have been living on a different planet..I was always under the impression that first class meant next day but now according to Royal mail that's no longer the case. In the mountains here our post arrives about 1p.m...on a good day..nearer to Christmas it may well be 3p.m. or later.

Well I'm off to get the flour out but will be back later with another design team make...BT willing of course. So until later..take care and happy crafting.
