April Showers

Hello Friends! I'm so excited to have the opportunity to join the DT over at Little Miss Muffet Challenges this week as a guest. For challenge #33 the theme is "April Showers" and we could add raindrops, rain clouds, umbrellas or anything rain themed on our projects. You'll notice I used several of these things :) This is Paprika, isn't she adorable!! She's one of many cute images available at the Little Miss Muffet Store. I also had some paper with clouds and I found some rain dots in my stash that I had bought a while back and never used.
I'm on a polka dot kick and thought Paprika's rain coat would look so cute with polka dots so I decided to try out the paper piecing technique. This is my second attempt at trying this and I am rather pleased with how it turned out. My first attempt several months ago was a disaster and I couldn't understand how anyone could do it, but I gave it another shot and I like it, yay!
What are you waiting for, hurry on over to the Challenge Blog and see what wonderful samples the DT has waiting for you then grab your supplies and join in the fun.
