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.

Jiggery Makery.....A Dress for Every Event

Today's cards are all design team makes for the wonderful Jiggery Makery. I thought that I would share these three dresses with you, as they represent different type outfits made with the Jiggery Makery designs. If you get the chance, please pop over to the facebook page and take a look at all the wonderful designs, all drawn by the owner Adele. I just love playing about with all the designs of the always takes me back to being a young girl playing fashion designer with my pens and papers. I remember that all my dresses had an over skirt and always had to have puff sleeves. In reality I loved puff sleeves and always wanted them on my dresses. I will have to try to find a photo of me in one of my dresses...if nothing else it will give you a good

The sun is shining here in the mountains I have been deserted by all the furry I can see 4 of them stretched out on the studio roof. They were all in for breakfast and disappeared as soon as their tummies were full. Simon, as most of you know, has a problem with his vision...he has no peripheral vision so falls off things an awful lot.All the other cats run up the tree to reach the studio roof but this must have caused Simon problems. So now he runs round to the back of the cottage.up onto the roof and jumps down from the main roof of the house to the studio. All you hear is the thud of him landing on the studio This morning he caused absolute chaos in the parlour. He was trying to jump from my chair onto the table..he managed to take out 2 boxes and 2 pots that were full of pens..and still fell off. He doesn't half give me a right if I'm to Nicademus has really taken to the cat tunnel and can be found there asleep most nights.I am tempted to buy them a scratching post..they have been using the banister for nearly 30 years now..each generation has had a go at now looks like a piece of modern

Things have been happening here. My skip has arrived and is providing pure joy for the village. Before I had put anything in myself..two people asked if they could put two things in and I said yes..after all these same people have done the same for me over the years. Well no sooner had these two things gone in and there was another two people asking if they could have what had just gone I've now managed to get some of my things in and on Monday I'll be putting my bedroom stuff in..a new bed for me...I can't wait. I've decided to do it on Monday because I have a huge amount of work to I can enjoy doing that over the weekend and then get down to work on the bedroom. My cleaner is due later so I'm hoping that he will put some more stuff in for me. I'm also going to cut back one of my trees and provide myself with an arch of shade. The sign for the cottage is now finished so that will be going outside, alongside my new gargoyle. I have a huge green man on the front of the was a present from a friend many years ago and is an actual cast from one in Bath. It is funny because it is often used as a clue in treasure I get the strangest people standing in front of my cottage, clutching pieces of paper, getting very excited. It always makes me smile because they always comment on the cats that sit there watching them. I think that the gargoyle will fit in

Well the coffee is calling and then I should get down to some work. I'm hoping to do a feature for Decoupage Delights running all next week, alongside all my other design team please watch this I've already decided what to do for dinner tonight. We are going to have steak pie with baby new potatoes and cabbage. I do adore cabbage in any form and always have done. I'm already feeling hungry just thinking about I may also make some scones. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
