Work in Progress Wednesday

Ha I am feeling self satisfied today as I have something to report. I have had time to do some hand embroidery on the pockets for my hussif!

Hussif sewing caddy pocket

This is the pocket that will hold a small pair of embroidery scissors. If you are viewing this on a computer you will probably be seeing it larger than life.

I am not sure if I shared this with you but it is a pocket for the stencils which are also done. Click on it for  larger view

Hussif sewing caddy pocket What have you done this week that takes you towards your stitching goals? Leave a comment and let us know.

As a side note for those interested in the min challenge: A hussif is a sewing roll or sewing kit or caddy but I gave a more detailed answer here . The idea is that people design their own hussifs. Any style of  quilting or embroidery is acceptable just make your hussif the hussif you have always wanted to own!  The is no deadline but aim for quality or give yourself a space for experimentation not simply tick off another project.  I presented some informal guidelines here .

For those who do crazy quilting 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


  1. Your work is absolutely lovely! I do have a question. Did you attach the beads and then add the cast on flowers to the stencil pocket? (I just worked a similar seam and failed to leave enough room for a seed bead. Luckily, I had petite seed beads in the right color that fit. But, it made me wonder how you work yours.)

    I decided on a fabric and cut borders for the Winter/Christmas wall quilt I am working on this week. And, I made more progress on my cross-stitch.
