April Showers are Everywhere!!!!

Well; I had this post saved for a few days now; went in to finish things up before publishing it....what happened??  Your guess is as good as mine.  lol.  I hit something and the whole thing was gone!!
So; here I am trying to remember with this old brain what I had written...darn!!!

I want to first of all thank Madame Samm and Erin for their hard work organizing things for us. They are fantastic gals!! Thank you...

Now; I made a set of 4 mug rugs by finding pictures on line and printing them up on fabric sheets. This is a quick and easy way to do pictures.

A close up:
We have the fiddlehead...I love these little greens all cooked up with butter and vinegar.
Then the ladies and their umbrellas in the rain.
The little bird singing in the rain.
And some lovely flowers to make us think of late spring.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog hop; and will visit the rest of the folks participating today.

  63. Great way to make mug rugs. Fiddlehead - now that's a new one for me. I'd like to taste some. My mom had a neighbor who would go out and pick watercress and mom would make the dressing with some bacon grease, sugar, and vinegar - and it was poured over while it was still warm. Yumm, I'd love a bowl of that. I wonder if fiddlehead is similar.
