Chookyblue's update

I had to have a major resort before I started the rest of my April blocks...............
balancing out the colour especially since I am doing different colour circles.........
just got caught  with a few other things that had to happen............
but nearly  there........
It's been great to see where everyone is up to.........thankyou to those girls who are finished and great to hear from you even if your not finished it is nice to see your progress.........and if your not finished you pretty close so keep up the great work...........now onto May............I wonder who will be finished first this month...............maybe me...........lol..........

I'm loving the bright colours too.
I was prepping some of my May ones and I had to lay them all out to make sure I didnt have too moch of one colour - or all the small hearts weren't one colour etc etc...my design wall (??) is already chock a block with other WIPs...might be time for a re sort of all that...
