Work in Progress Wednesdays

Crazy quilted Hussif in progress This piece of crazy quilting is a part of my latest project which as regular readers will now is a hussif , a type of traditional sewing caddy. This piece will be a pouch/roll that will sit inside the hussif.

If you click on the image you will see a large version.

Last week on my work in progress post, when I wrote about this project  I explained how I always do the embroidery and then add beads, buttons and charms.  I was at the stage in the process where I was about to start adding beads.

This week I would like to say I have done that and finished the piece so I am ready to move on making 2 internal pockets.

I think readers would like to see and read about some of the details so here they are!

Crazy quilted Hussif in progress

Once again click on the image to see a larger view of it.

On this section I used half a hand dyed doily. I used procion dyes to dye it and it was added into the seam as I pieced.

The Woven Zig zag chain that I worked over rick rack is a TAST stitch .

The Feathered Up and Down buttonhole (on the left) is also a TAST stitch.

Hussif-SRE-rosesI used my Crazy quilt templates to create the curved lines in this little motif . I traced off the lines using the template then stitched them in stem stitch before adding the silk ribbon fargo roses , feather stitch, French knots and beads.

hussif vine

For the stems of this vine once again I used my Crazy quilt templates to create the curved lines of the vine.

What have you done this week towards your stitching goals?

Leave a comment and let us know.
As a side note for those interested in the mini challenge:

The idea is that people design their own sewing caddy or hussif in any style of quilting or embroidery. The is no deadline.  I presented some informal guidelines here.
One of the challenges this year on CrazyQuilting International is to create a hussif you may want to combine the two challenges. If you are a crazy quilter and working a hussif dont forget my give away tutorial on how to work decorative crazy quilt seams

  2. I’m way behind on the Tast stitches because I have been doing this WIP quilt. It has a lot of hand stitching but not embroidery.

    I’m getting nowhere fast with my projects at the mo, thanks to a number of mistakes, frogging sessions and so on, but here’s my post moaning about it all:

  8. I am going to come to a screaming halt on this piece as my PC is at the computer repair man and he is very slow at repairing.

    Beautiful progress, Sharon. You are so good at combining TAST stitches, ribbon work and beads.
    I have added some more TAST stitches to my Swedish cushion and come quite far on my TAST reference chart. I find the latter a very helpful ‘tool’.
