Okay - here goes for Part Two
The Inside of the Hussif
|INSIDE OF HUSSIF|
On the left is a large open pocket and to the right you can see a pincushion roll. In the middle is a large zippered pocket (see the rose charm on the upper right which is actually a zipper pull) that flips down to show further things beneath. The large rose is a needle case, of sorts. To the right you can see a crochetedthimble holder and a holder for a spool of thread. On the upper left of that section is the magnetic needle holder and to the right is a pin keep. Below is a smaller pocket (the flap opens up to reveal a pocket and the area behind the flap is left open to create a further pocket area.
|HUSSIF INSIDE - MIDDLE SECTION|
Above you can see the middle section opened up. At the top there is another small pocket with a flap (also left open behind for additional storage). Below left is a needlebook and to the right a scissor holder. The flap itself holds a scratch pad and a pen.
Below are some close-ups of the inner sections...

There you go - the entire hussif. Finished. Done. Complete.
This project has taken a little over two months to complete - two months of pure unadulterated joy in creation. This hussif will never likely be actually 'used' as a hussif, but will be kept pristine and perhaps, one day, might become an heirloom. Of course there's an equal chance it will end up in the garbage tip once I kick off the mortal coil but that won't be up to me!! The design is my own, cobbled together from many great ideas I have come across on places like Pinterest and in various books and magazines. As I said on the previous post, you can click to embiggen any of the pictures and if you want even more details see the labels on the right hand side of my blog under 'Hussif' and 'Crazy Quilting'.
Today I give you a quote from Elbert Hubbard.... "Know what you want to do, hold the thought firmly, and do every day what should be done, and every sunset will see you that much nearer the goal"
