April Showers MugRug Blog Hop!!

Welcome to day three of the April Showers Mug Rug Blog Hop.


Erin at Sew at home Mummy is our cheerleader for this hop!


April may have showers that bring us the flowers that bloom in May, but I never think of rain...I think of my wedding anniversary. This year is a biggie......25!
I know, right.......forever, in the blink of an eye.
We have had our ups and downs, thank The Lord, more ups than downs.

I used some sweetwater fabric and found all the 1988's I could to surround this embroidered block. I got the hands pattern on etsy from becgroves and added the dates in my poor handwriting.


A tiny bit of handquilting around the flowers and it was done.



Here are the other blog hoppers....
April shower them with a little hopping around.
A few of them even have giveaways!
