{ busy little bee }

I thought I'd share with you the work-in-progress of a little bee I've just completed for a dear friend of my sister who recently turned 30. Alix is her name and she loves bees so when her mum commissioned me to create something for her gift to her daughter, a golden queen bee seemed just right. We decided on a single bee in her very own big square frame - which I think makes it feel a little more special and statement. The last pic isn't great, rather a quick snap on my wall before delivering it to Alix - but I know she'll will look much better than this once in her final home! That is, the greatest little Queenslander in Paddington that Alix and her partner are renovating... the house has great bones and they have great style so I can't wait to see it as they put their mark on it. And of course the bee up and at home, too!

Meanwhile not sure about you but I am certainly looking forward to a break and some beach time over Easter. See you soon!
