Work in Progress Wednesdays

needlecase coverYay! my needle case is done! I never thought I would say Yay – but I have caught the habit from Eve my daughter and it does express the good feeling of reaching a big milestone. (Actually I am saying Yay to just about everything these days and I must stop it) With the needle case cover done it means that all the hand embroidery and embellishments for all the pieces of my sewing caddy is now done. I just have to assemble them.

As usual if you click on the image you will be taken to larger photograph so you have a good a look

Now I have just the needle book cover to make and I will have all the parts of my sewing hussif embellished and ready to assemble. I will have nearly done my mini challenge.

crazy quilt sewing caddy detail 7 For now however I will share some eye candy as the feedback I get on that tells me people enjoy it.

The first detail I would like to share is a trail of beads that cover a seam.

The next is a floral spray made with silk ribbon embroidery and of course I used my crazy quilt templates to mark out the stems.

The next detail illustrates another example of my templates in use as the scallops were traced then embroidered using stem stitch worked in a bright pink silk thread. The heart shapes are sequins secured with a seed bead.
