Work in Progress Wednesday

Life is still very busy here (as per usual) but I did manage to do a little more stitching so I thought I would share what is on my hoop. As you can see I am half way through doing woven zig zag chain over the ric rac that is just below the doily – it takes an age!Hussif work in progress photo 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 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

  1. I love the flowers on the left from feather and bullion, very clever use of the stitches and so pretty. Lovely piece in all. I have made my body , a clever little round pocket for tape measure, some silk pockets I need to embroider. Forgot to take photos.

  2. Yes, woven zigzag chain takes a lot of time. For me the weaving is very relaxing, just stitching and watch it grow.
    Again no progress on my TAST 2012 fabric book, I only decided which fabric to use on the inside of my cover!

  3. I forgot something important about my finished hexagon quilt. I started this with the “Take it Further” challenge Sharon did several years ago – then kept going. I wouldn’t have that quilt without this blog.
    Sharon, that so much for doing this blog.

  4. Sharon, You are working on a ring frame again. what happened to the Grip-n-Stitch one? Did you experience problems with it.?
    I love mine for medium size projects. I bought 2 sets thinking that combined would be satisfactory but found that there is an optimum size which!!! is slightly larger that one set provides.
    All good wishes Ann B.
