It's That Time Again!

Well it's the beginning of a new month, and with it comes the sunshine.   Let's hope it's the start of things to come.  But before I look forward, I am going to take part in:

Lily's Quilts

Which is basically a round up of what has been achieved in the previous month.  And here's the bit where I get fancy.  I have taught myself how to make a photo mosaic :-)  So rather than rambling on about what I have made in April, you can see for yourself:

Oh and, most importantly, I completed and passed module 4 of my coursework :-)

And along with my new found photo mosaic skills, I have been learning how to use Touchdraw for the ipad to design quilts.  Once again, all thanks to Lynne from Lily's Quilts.  It's been great fun and I think it will be a really useful skill to have for the future.  But I have to say, even though I am relatively young (ish) and have been brought up with computers, I do find that technology is moving at such a fast pace, it really is a struggle to keep up! 

All in all I think I have achieved quite a bit in April, now the pressure is on to get lots done in May!  First priority - finish my quilt for William - this will mean lots of midnight stitching, but it's going well, photos coming soon :-)

And now it's time to get social; I am taking part in:

Lily's Quilts
