April and May BJP done!!

Well I finished May and took a good picture of April finally. 
Here is April.  It is kind of abstract.  I wanted to just follow the lines in the fabric and play off the colors in the fabric So here is what I came up with.

Here is May.  I just got done with the Quilters Puzzle quilt and was still in the black and red mood.

Something is finaly done...some are part of the way done

I sat down saturday and  worked on the puzzle quilt and I want to add another border, but not a printed fabric.  I have a printed fabric for the binding.
I also finished March's Bead Journal Project.  I wanted to work with yellow and green beads.  In late March is when the Daffodils start to bloom so I thought this would be a great March peice.

Here are January, February, and March peices put together to make the first of four tumbling blocks.
I also got on a beading roll and did Aprils, but I need to take a better picture of it.  That will be posted on a later date.  Mom and I went to Silverdale on Thursday and did some shopping, she was a bad influence on me.  She made me spend money at one of the fabric stores...ugh!  I try not to buy unless I have a project to do, but they had some nice batik on the 30% off rack.  I was only going to by 1 yard of it but mom coned me in to buying 1.5 yards of it and 4 coordinating batiks to go with it.  Now my brain is trying to find a pattern that I want to use it in.  Dang that
