April Showers Bring….

Do you like thunder storms, the smell of wet plants after a good rain, or the promise of things to bloom? This month the Island Batik Ambassadors were given an April Showers Challenge.

This challenge made me stop and think about my childhood and how much I enjoyed splashing through the puddles and making mud pies after a good thunder storm. Do kids even do that anymore???

The border is the lovely Island Batik Lavish collection and the rest was pulled from my Island Batik scrap bin. I wanted it to have a playful feel so I simply doodled around each applique with black thread.
