On the right hand end I couched a fancy thread with Buttonhole stitches and was surprised how it improved the appearance. I have forgotten the name of the stitch I used between the couching. It is crossed and woven…below.
Then I settled down to completing the working part of the hussif
On the right end there is a pocket for Sharon’s templates and/or written notes. This fabric was part of a blouse front – I left the buttons attached and embroidered around them.
There was a fold which I stitched down, for half the length with Cable Chain, creating a narrow pocket in which I could slip a short ruler .
I’ve included a pencil, tape measure, container for beads, threads and ribbons.
The thread is CottageGarden/hellebore
Annet’s lovely gift biscornu will grace small scissors soon.
The black piece is a magnetic strip for needles in use.
If I have the hussif completed by next Wednesday it will be the second fastest project I have ever done.
The year is quickly ending but Work In Progress Wednesdays will keep running in 2015.
A good time during holidays, to find your UFO’s and join in next year. Here’s the link to go to.
