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.....The perfect dress

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful Jiggery Makery.I just love this design of the lady Victoria. it gives you a fantastic opportunity to design the dress of your dreams. When I was a little girl, if you had given me 10 copies of this would have kept me quiet for I loved nothing better than designing fabrics and then colouring them in.When I drew gowns, I always gave them an over skirt as me it was just a way to get an extra layer of colour. For the design above, I used my pens to colour the base of the dress and then created the details with glue and black glitter. I added a pearl to the bottom of the points. And of course she had to have a pair of white evening gloves. I can still remember my Grandmothers collection of evening glove. Some has ruching all the way to the elbow..they were fantastic. I hope that you will pop over to the Jiggery Makery facebook page and take a look at all the fabulous designs that are available.

Yesterday was my day out and I have to say that I'm exhausted. I can't move very well at all today and I don't think that there is an inch of me that doesn't hurt. But I did it and I enjoyed it was worth the bother. I first went for my xray and have to say that the staff at the hospital were fantastic..I did have to get in a slight Barbie pose for the xray but the staff were so kind, I'll get the results in a couple of weeks. Then I was taken to B and M. I was amazed with the size of the place. Surrounded by stuff and goodness me they had packed everything in. I was in shopping I bought some treats for the cats and lots of stuff for the house..and it was so cheap. I have to say that I have bought a few things to alter which will hopefully end up as presents.

The cats are made up with their presents and have me laugh so was worth the pennies. I first bought them a cat tunnel and today it has been as busy as the It makes a crackling noise when they walk along it and that seems to fascinate them. There is a hole in the middle which they pop their heads out of it. It looks so funny when you see a bottom and tail popping out of the end and a head popping out of the hole. It looks like one very strange cat when it's I also bought them a laser pointer which ends up creating cat Olympics and some catnip biscuits. The funniest thing was the biscuits. I got one tiny biscuit out for Rave and goodness me she went into a rapture..she was rubbing her head on it for a good 5 minutes and then she was drooling...and that was before she ate it. Jeffrey was also in rapture and to see him playing on the bed made me giggle.

Finally on my mammoth day out, I went to Tesco. Now I know that doesn't sound very exciting..but I hadn't been in a supermarket for about 3 years. Because I do all my shopping online it makes a big difference to actually have a wheel round. My friend pushed the trolley and I just chose what I the time I got into the car, I was exhausted and am still feeling it today. Lots of goodies though to play with..both for the cats and myself..and the cupboard has been stocked with lots of things for the coming weeks.

Well the coffee is calling and then I will be getting dinner ready early because there is athletics on later. It's the Anniversary games and my friend the pa will be down there..watching it live. It should be a good night. So until tomorrow...take care and happy crafting.
