"When April Showers come your way, they bring the flowers that bloom in May. So if it’s raining, have no regrets. It isn’t raining rain you know, it’s raining Violets."
I have had this song stuck in my head ever since this April Showers Mug Rug Hop was announced! So now you can have it stuck in your head too!:)
I was ever so excited that this hop was just in time for my birthday- and my friend Laurie’s birthday too! I decided to make Laurie a rug for her birthday gift, but I’ll show that one in a minute. This is the rug that was inspired by the song that is running through my head. This is MY rug for MY birthday!
I quilted the raindrops around the violets
I am so thankful to Gina for reminding me that my day was today – I was thinking that I was on Monday.
Laurie’s birthday was on Saturday so I made her this rug- The Hollywood Party is in black, white and red and they happen to be my favorite colors and Laurie's too, so here is the Yambo Awards Mug Rug:
Sunday evening, while Pastor Fritz was preaching, I was inspired to make this one.
Our Spring Campaign is titled Get in The Boat and Pastor loves to fish, (usually from his kayak- this is a canoe because the kayak looked odd.) And I had this fish material so….
Get In The Boat. Made for Pastor Fritz.
|I think if this fish got in the boat- Pastor might capsize!|
I will be cutting a few more rugs in the near future, they are fun to make!
Thank you to Erin and Madame Samm for keeping us all together and inspiring us to try new things! Have fun hopping over at these fabulous blogs:FRIDAY, APRIL 12th
