Gosh I'm finally back - falling 4m off a ladder certainly takes it out of you! Thank you for all your warm wishes, while I couldn't actually do anything I did lots of creating in my head, so here is Vintage Christmas. Hand made with vintage sheet music, sewing and embellished with a hint of German glass glitter, velvet ribbon and more, I hope these are cards that will be cherished.

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over. by John Masefield
