Work In Progress Wednesday – hussif

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I nearly forgot today is Wednesday.   OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThree more additions to my hussif this week.  For the first seam I used this week’s TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday) No. 130-Double Lock stitch and added beads to this.

On the next photo I made a vine and wisteria blooms. I loosely whipped stem stitch for the vine and detached chain leaves and pearl beads.  Also added are gold glass beads above.

The next vine, Detached Cast-ons in knitting cotton were made, with ecru crochet thread for leaves.

I have neglected the inner part of my hussif and hope to get that moving soon.

If it were not for Sharon suggesting people take up a mini challenge hussif or to finish their own projects, I would never have begun making a hussif, let alone getting it made.   If you have work lying idle, why not check out the WIPW and see how easy it is to join in without stress, as the only deadline is your own.

  1. Beautiful additions to your hussif!

  2. Those last words are so true!
    Your WIP is impressive. I think the vine and wisteria are so elegant, and I do love the Double Lock Stitch.

  3. Thank you Annet and Queenie for the compliments

  4. Love the ‘grapes’ and the cast-on flowers. Really pretty.

    • Thank you very much Lillian

  5. Your hussif is so elegant, Maureen. Will you really handle it and use it? It looks too lovely to be utilitarian. And it’s too lovely not to be where it will be seen!

    • Thank you. It’s meant to be used.
