    Hi Margaret – your blue skies mosaic ball is a marvel… I found mosaicing quite hard to do – especially the finishing off – but the results are spectacular… I’m enjoying listening to mint too. All the best for the rest of the #atozchallenge Reflex Reactions

    Good luck with the challenge and looking forward to your posts.
