April Themed Projects from Around the Web

April Showers bring May Flowers, at least I think that’s how the poem goes. And I’ve seen a lot of great April Showers themed projects on the web over the last few days.  Here are a few of my favorites. I found these great Mug Rugs by Quilting and Other Craft Therapy via Threadbias. I Read More …
