The Vivian Apron

A beautiful Friday and time to tear myself away form Facebook and YouTube and the ongoing flow of information from the European gymnastics scene.  Time for that later after I'm done with my own gymnasts and the sun has set. 
A stitchy finish of sorts for today:  The Vivian Apron by Rebecca Ruth Designs.  My neighbor bought this kit at the Chatfield College Quilt Show two weeks ago as a birthday gift for her daughter.  A nice chance for me to brush-up on my rick-rack attaching skills.  Now I have a pattern that I can use over and over again.

A really cute cookie/baking themed print

Everything is the garden is blooming!  It's just amazing what a mild Winter can do.  I didn't lose a single perennial this year.  I'm even seeing things bloom that I didn't know I had.  When did I plant this color iris?  It probably didn't make it through Winter 2010 and got through Winter 2011 to grace us with it's presence this Spring.  My Baptista and Red Hot Poker have also "resurfaced".

Kitty Roy enjoys the abundant crop of cat nip.  A few more bites and he'll be groovin' with the Party Frogs!

Happy Friday everyone.
