Work in Progress Wednesdays

With the start of the Studio Journal class being today I have been very busy.

I do have a little bit to report as I have started on the next pocket for my hussif but as you can see it is barely a start with one seam embroidered but not yet beaded and a few bullion roses started for a motif. As you can see I dont mark out the motifs. I used to but now I just eye ball them and plan as I go.

Crazy quilted Hussif in progress

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
