WIP Hussif

Amongst my treasures I found a cameo and beaded it to what will be the front section of the hussif.  I had to get DH to drill Tiny holes in the cabochon and found I couldn’t pass the size 15 beading needle and thread back through the hole as there was no space – so no bead hiding the thread there 😦

I added beads to the centre of lace and Pistil stitches on the sides.

The last seam today is Beaded Hedebo Edge

The hussif is filling up more, which is encouraging me to keep at it.

Over at Pintangle you can find out more about WIPW (Work In Progress Wednesdays).  Also if you check the comments you can find links to see what others are doing on their projects.

  1. Your piece is coming on really nicely.

    • Thank you very much.

  2. What delightful colour scheme; the cameo really belongs there!
    Have you tried using a nylon thread for the beading? You will not need a needle for it, especially if you use a needle/stiletto to make a hole in the fabric first. The nylon thread will be stiff enough to pass through the holes of the fabric, cameo and bead.

    • Hi Queenie, no I haven’t tried the nylon thread minus needle. I’ve plenty of tapestry needles thick enough to use as a stiletto and will have a practise with your method. Thank you for your idea.

  3. wonderful colour scheme. love it.

    • Thank you. I like using cream/coffee/white and golds as the work isn’t overcome by bright colours. I still like colours though 🙂

  4. Lovely theme, beautiful embellishments.

    • Thank you Janie.

  5. Your hussif is coming along beautifully! I like Queenie’s idea…I’ve seen a friend of mine using nylon thread to fix some cut stones so I think it’ll work .

    • Thanks Anita. I’ll have to find another treasure and have it drilled so I can check threading with nylon. It sounds a good idea.

  6. I cannot wait to see your hussif when it is complete. This additions are gorgeous.

    • Thank you Renee 🙂
