I can't decide

Fat Quarter Shop has a new BOM coming out in July called Tiny Town that I think is too cute. I can't decide if I should sign up for it or not. It's another of Anne Sutton so I know the instructions are good, with full size applique patterns. The fabrics beautiful and classic.
It would over lap Le Jardin by about two months though.

This week's Cha Cha Challenge is an apron! I'm super excited, though I still don't know what pattern to make. I'm thinking maybe this one from Moda Bake Shop or maybe doing the half apron from the pattern I made for my sister. I know I want it to have good pockets. I'm always wanting to throw things in my pockets, it's easier then setting them down and then not remembering where I put them.

If I do the half apron I'll do the body from charms.
What do you think?

Update
Well I got a bee in my bonnet about getting this apron done and it turns out the apron on Moda Bake Shop would not be close to big enough so I went with the Domestic Goddess half apron.

I used one charm pack and not even a whole yard of fabric. I really like how this turned out.

Super little apron you have there. Does it have a backing?

Your apron turned out so cute! I love it! But I am wondering the same thing as Judith. I am in an apron swap and I thought I would like to make a patchwork apron something like yours. What happens to the back of the apron? If I line it, will it be too thick?

I like the Tiny Town pattern too, so cute. I still have my Le Jardin BOM that you are doing that I haven't even had time to make at all. So what I decided to do because I love the Tiny Town, it would be so cute to just do part of it for a small quilt too. Anyway, instead of doing the BOM I decided to just buy the pattern from the Bunny Hill web-site and use fabrics I already have in my stash.
