Here's my April photo.



Here's my Tis the Season wall hanging although at this stage I have planned it as a rail hanging. My house has quite a few railings - going around the central staircase and between some of the rooms. So I attached the tape so that I can hang it on the rail for Christmas.
The fabric is Adoring from Moda, and is the same fabric I used for my Tis the Season quilt. I was hoping that there would be enough to do the patchwork bag but even though I have quite a bit of yardage I don't really have enough variety to do the hexagons. Anyway I still have a month or two to think about that.
Now onto May.
