Here in south Texas, this is a wonderful time of year to go fishing!
My little mug rugs come complete with a row boat (with removeable oars) to hold just the right amount of snacks! I kept it very simple because I wanted the novelty fabric to stand out.

This morning I'm sitting on my patio enjoying my morning coffee and the cool Spring weather! I'm watching the bees that are busy among my flowers and thanking God that I can enjoy such a sight!
So April also reminds me of bees! (We haven't had many April showers, unfortunately!) My little bee mug rugs are complete with antennae and wings! I even made a little table runner complete with bees to go along with them!
.....and this is their favorite spot! Except that Sugarplum gives them just a little of a scare!
April is a pretty busy sewing time for me!! BUT, sometimes I need a little break and a cup of tea in one of my pink Depression glass cups. They remind me of spring, too! They are the color of pink sweetheart roses or the pink dogwoods that we used to have that bloomed in April. So, of course, my mug rug had to be from soft pink, but with chocolate touches - since tea is no fun without little chocolate heart cookies.
