Sunday evening, I've had a quiet weekend. It has been cold, snow is on the local mountain top. My tender plants are covered with blankets and towels to protect against the frost. Although the day was sunny and bright. Moving quickly I went for a walk, enjoying the bright pink and blue of magnolias and sky. The colors are so bright it hurts to look for long. Blue, the color of my next project. I went to a gem show yesterday and felt a little out of my element. I do not know anything about gems, cuts, rocks or what is precious or not. I just know what I like. Intimidated but not enough to stop me from buying a few things-I just bought things I liked. It doesn't take long to spend money and the bags are SO little! But now I have stones to work with and I am happy.
