I teach a monthly apron sewing class at a local sewing shop. It's a lot of fun and I love the ladies who come each month. In coming up with a new apron every month, I am finding that I love girly additions more than I thought I would!
Ruffles and flounces are becoming a favorite of mine!
I used Julie's pattern to make this cutie. It has a sweetheart neckling and a it uses bias tape to rim the edges. I love how bias tape adds a bit of color!
What about you? Are you making anything fun these days?

This week Aubry and I made some progress on here super duper colorful quilt!
I made up the blocks and she sewed. We still have several to get done, but the rocks in my yard took up all of my time this weekend. The warmer it gets outside, the harder it is to sit down at the machine, don't you think?

I had a great weekend! It was full of work, but it feels so nice to have my yard done.
Saturday was spent laying down bark in my flower beds, and putting down the fabric layer for the rocks. For a while I was pretty concerned that the rocks weren't going to come close to covering the area in the yard---1350 square feet. The pile seemed way too small.
Some wonderful friends came over to help out. It was actually a lot of fun (how can moving 10 tons of rock be fun!?!?!?) and the rocks covered the area perfectly.
Perfectly, I tell ya!
I have about one wheelbarrow-full of rock left and I will use that to fill in the some holes in another part of my yard.
Having less grass makes me look forward to a much smaller water bill this year! Unless the price of water goes up, of course! :)
Here is our finished product:
The shadowing in the picture doesn't do this justice. The color of the rock against the grass and the house is very pretty.
We got started on Aubry's quilt. She picked out these colors and prints and she did a bunch of the sewing too. So far we have 1/2 of the blocks done, so hopefully by SHOW AND TELL TUESDAY I will have a completed top.
I can dream, right???
One the agenda for this weekend? Moving 5 tons of rocks with wheelbarrows and shovels. Seriously! My son's friends are coming over to help me get a huge yard project done and I am so excited about it! This spring lots of things are coming together and getting completed. That's a great feeling after having so many thing undone!
