January "New Embroidery Using Vintage Patterns" challenge

I'm starting the year off right with a finish!! Woot!! I first posted about this challenge Here.

and HERE I made it to wear while sewing..There's a handy little scissor pocket, PLUS.. who besides me is always hunting tape measures for "eye-balling" measurements?? now there it is!! sewn right to the side so that it's always ready in my lap.
and a tiny china-man pincushion at the waist, so I'll never lose my hand-embroidery needle again.I'm planning to add more scrappy bits..but the wkend(play-time) is nearly over, and "it's like the sun going down on me" to para-phrase Elton :D

It turned out sooo cute! Even on days you don't feel like sewing you will have no problem getting your motivation back once you put this apron on.
