The Princess has had her 4 yo immunizations recently and has had a severe reaction to it which has left her arm twice the size & hot & red from the elbow to the shoulder. This required some extra special ‘studio’ time with Nonna. Like most Princess’ of note – she loves her jewels – so we had a quiet day & set about creating some new beaded treasures for Spring. I am TOTALLY in love with soft sea blue/green at the moment and think that will be my colour of note this season – it’s a few weeks away, but the buds are unfurling, my daphne is intoxicatingly sweet & the bulbs are popping their heads out for a look. It feels warmer (despite coming out to ice all over my car yesterday morning) and the day light hours are beginning to stretch out.
