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....The Loo Roll Book

Today's creation is a design team make for the wonderful JB-Crafting Supplies. I have had so many messages about this little book that next week I shall be doing a step by step blog on the JB-Crafting Supplies blog page. This little tag book is made using empty loo roll cardboards as the tag holders. I saw it made on the tv and thought to myself what a brilliant idea. I liked the fact that it was a small book that you could decorate to save anything special. I have made this one to hold pictures of the kittens first year..I just have to add the photos. But you could make a little book to save some special memories..a birthday, a trip out some where..or even pictures of your garden through the year. So if you are one of the ladies that messaged me about this little book..please start collecting your empty cardboard rolls and I will do a step by step make next week. If you need any papers or embellishments, please pop over to Julie at JB-Crafting Supplies and she is bound to find what you either need or want.

The sun is shining here in the mountains and all the cats have deserted me for the Last night was my first night in my new bed, but I'm afraid that I have managed to upset the cats again. I made up my new bed with new bedding and I went to bed. Well Gannie arrived and goodness me did he have a complain. The new bed was in a different position and Gannie kept telling me about it and kept running to the original position as much to say should be here. He kept on for about half an hour and then finally gave up and came and lay by me. It's a wonder that he had any voice left after yesterday..what with voicing about the builder and then about the bed..he said an awful lot. I find it funny that a lot of my cats are really vocal..people seem to find it really funny because they really make you know that they're telling you something. Gannie I have to say is getting a bit cheeky as well. Today he walked into Sparkles house as if he had the's not enough that Jeffrey thinks that Sparkles garden is an extension of mine but Gannie walking in..the cheek of've just spotted Gannie..he is actually asleep in the shade on the studio roof.

I think today will just be a crafting day. After yesterday there isn't a spot that doesn't hurt. So legs are up and I've had to take some extra pills. When things hurt this much, I find myself splints will be on very soon. I've got a lovely afternoon planned..Olympics on the tv and some hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to start on the kitchen..lots of moving round to do in readiness for the carpet and the other piece of lino to go down. Hopefully by September all will be done.

Well the coffee is calling and then it will be time to get the paints out. My favourite dinner tonight..yet,new potatoes and salad. I hope that the weather is being kind to you wherever you are. So until next time..take care and happy crafting.
