April showers blog hop My day

!Sew WE Quilt!

Today is my day of the blog hop April showers. I want to thank madam Sam and Erin for being our cheerleader. I first had no idea what to make. But then I thought April showers! April is the month with a lot of showers but also with days of lovely weather. I love to sit in the garden and drink tea and do a litle embroidery. I wanted to make something like that and started drawing.
After that I needed fabric. Maybe blue for the sky and green for the gras. An umbrella had to be there and also a chair and a table. I do not drink coffee but I added a cup of tea. Well when rain and son meet there must be a rainbow. So this was how it turned out The measures are .14 x 22 cm (5,5 x 8,5 inch)
