APRILS SHOWERS HAVE ARRIVED!

My Day is April 8th Today's the day!

I want to thank Erin  and Madame Samm for all the hard work in creating such a fun hop!

The day I join the hop my mind had already decided that the April Showers was going bring spring flowers and these are one of my most favorite kind. The colour I chose came from my granddaughter favorite one.



I took out the embroidery hoop for my sewing machine which I haven't used in a very long time. A tulip was unearthed with a colorful surrounding! A little free motion quilting and just in time for tea!

You can connect here for all the other wonderful creations for the hop. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your tour through the other creations.
