Sleeping Beauty Day 16

Recuperation took a tad longer than I had hoped, but today back to paintbrush wielding as normal! It made me very happy to continue with all the various projects, including "Sleeping Beauty". I've always preferred the version of the story with a little old woman spinning in the attic, who had not heard the king's decree about burning all spinning wheels. Thus the teenage princess's natural curiousity and the little old lady's desire to show her how to spin combine to fulfill the fates cast on the princess by the fairies.
