April has ended!

Finally.

Continuing with the light 6" blocks that we've moved on to (which seem huge and bright after all those 3" dark blocks for the first set of borders), here's April 28th


which required a huge amount of trimming to bring it to size.


April 29th wasn't so wasteful,


and April 30th was lots and lots of happy little pinwheels, for a true celebration of the end of the month!


(I was certainly ready to run around the house with a pinwheel in each hand and one clutched in my teeth at this point.  Sorry, no pictures...)

A sweet little basket kicks off May


and I'm tickled at how that star turned up in the little red triangle.  Yeah, yeah, I did that on purpose, uh-huh, yep.

And what day is complete without a monkey?


I swear I don't know how they're getting in...

The light blocks are quite light and refreshing. Probably a better choice for June anyway.

I love the "April has ended" - can't believe we're now halfway through June!. Lovely blocks Gayle.

Congratulation! One more month dealt with. I am right on your heels as I finished April 26 last night. Phewww! I can see the end of the month too. I love that Blueberry Pie pattern and your block is so pretty. They all are beautiful. FYI there was 853 pieces in April. I guess you'll end up with 365 monkeys too? lol. ;^)

Say it isn't so! But you have May flowers to look forward to while I'm sweating away in mid-June!
