Work in Progress Wednesday

Work in progress crazy quiltingI have made a little progress this week and started another section on my hussif. As you can see the embroidery is only started but it is a start!

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

    Even if it is only a start, you have made a great start and I look forward to how you will let the Feather stitches blossom.
    In spite of being busy with friends and quilts in the UK, I have managed to work on my various projects:

    I’m curious to know the approximate dimensions of your hussif. I’m planning to do one for myself and am not totally pleased with the size. Too late to change but I’d like something for comparison. Thanks.

    Sharon, your progress on this section of your hussif is off to a beautiful start!

    I made my post thinking, “Progress is progress, no matter how small.” (And I heard it in Horton’s voice from Horton Hears A Who – lol!)

    I love the look of your piece and a start on the embroidery is better than no embroidery at all.

    After three weeks holiday and a week getting settled back to normal routine I have managed a little of my back stitch this last week.

  10. Yay! Any forward movement is progress, Sharon!=)

    I’ve just posted about the embryonic beginnings of my new WIPW piece as well as a bit of a review of the pieces I’ve completed in the almost 2 years I’ve been joining in the ‘group.’

    Have been wonderng-What do you use as a foundation material
    for your crazy patch pieces? I have mainly used old well-washed
    cotton sheets as foundation.Have tried paper but was not too impressed.Thanks,Shirley

      Shirley I usually use old sheets too
      If I dont have old sheets I use a soft calico or homespun cotton
