March, in pictures

As we Spring into April, (see what I did there?)......I think March was maybe my busiest month for a while. It was a month full of deadlines, making things for expected babies, birthday babies, and of course getting ready for my Open Day.
Thank you all who commented and viewed the slideshow in my last post - over 270 views so far and I am determined not to even consider my husband's notion that it could be 5 people viewing 50+ times each!!
My mosaic for March isn't big, but it really represents many hours of work - I am pleased with all of it.
The owl cushioned welcomed Baby Kenneth on 5th March.
The applique baby was just one page of Ava's first yearbook.
The Road to Hell Tennessee blocks were for Jan, our Bee A Brit Stingy Queen Bee for March.
The Funky Wrench blocks were for Bee Blessed March.
And last, but really, by no means least - I made progress with my Mod Pop quilt. I might have modified my plans and now think I am heading for a double (full?) sized quilt, I even bought some backing from
 Pink Castle yesterday at a ridiculous $6 a yard.
Here's to a lovely, sunny April.
Linking to Lily's Quilts & Fresh Sewing Day.
PS. Update on Open Day - with some last minute sales this week, I was able to transfer £710 to Children's Hospice Association Scotland - thanks again all who helped to make this possible.
