Baby Chicks & Flirty Skirt = Signs of Spring

Spring is definitely moving in and setting up shop!  I keep waiting for one last cold snap (our official last frost date is April 16th) but I think it is safe to say we are into the warming season!  There are so many signs of Spring there is no denying it's presence.  Hubby and I were just in the yard and saw a swarm of honey bees fly by....AMAZING!  They took a quick rest on a tree branch and moved on.  This is the first time Hubby or I have seen anything of the sort!  Of course we are glad they were not our bees, but it gets us thinking about swarm prevention.  So we will be visiting the hive again on Sunday to check the progress of our ladies. 

Spring also brings fun and flirty clothes, skirts and dresses!  In my last post I showed yall the apron I had made.  I love it so much I want to save it for special occasions, so  I whipped up another one on Sunday.  This one has much darker colors so I figure it wont show stains so I can wear it on an more regular basis!  Don't you just love the chickens?

After my second apron, I felt confident enough to try my hand at a real skirt!  I say real as in, "I want it to be good enough that you can't tell I made it at home"!  What a perfect project for Spring!  I had this beautiful fabric and the perfect pattern.  On Monday morning I sat down in my sewing room and got to work.  It took a few hours to finish, but I was able to get it all done by Monday afternoon.  I am so excited!  I can't wait to wear it!


 The waist is elastic, so completely comfortable!
 Big pockets allow plenty of room for my insulin pump (a major downfall to Spring skirts...no pockets for my "gear")

And you know it's Spring when you find these cutie pies in the brooder house!  


Just picked these gals up today.  Five Buff Orpingtons and 4 Barred Rocks!  Baby chicks...*Swoon*
