After work, I went to the gym and then had dinner - I finally started on the apron at 8:00. I think I got to bed around 12:30, but it was finished...luckily there was a CSI marathon on TV last night to watch while I worked (I love CSI!).
Since I was only using one fabric (a border print twill that called to me), I had to make a few adjustments, but I think the finished product is cute. I hope she likes it. She is a great, and very caring, teacher.
I'll post pictures, and a review, later..

I'll have to check how much of the fabric I have, but if I have enough, I'm now thinking I'll make this dress. The pattern has been in my stash for a couple of years, and it gets a lot of good reviews on Pattern Review.

What do you think? Any other suggestions for this fabric? Maybe a dress?
Thanks to my friend Sylvie for pointing out that one of the front darts is shorter than the other. I'll fix that tonight.
Check out the invisible zipper...zipper? what zipper? LOL!
I'm hoping when I add the hook and eye that the waistline will line up correctly :)
Once I have it hemmed, I'll post a picture with the blouse.
Now I need to decide what to make for my July project. I have a cotton/linen blend in my stash I'd like to use. I'll post some pattern options later this week.

I also found time today to put together a storage unit I bought at Ikea last weekend - my house is FULL of toys!
I'll update later today and let you know how much progress I made...

I've spent a significant amount of time on PatternReview.com (mostly lurking and coveting) and now have a considerable stash of patterns and fabric, and a few unfinished projects, but seem to get paralysed by a fear of failure (maybe fear of wadder is a better description...). But at this point, I figure I've already spent the money, I might as well tackle my stash and see if I can't get some wearable clothes...
