Hussif? Done!

The Front fold







My Asian-themed hussif is now finished!

My pattern is a three-fold design, so I have shown you pictures of each of the three sections. 








The back fold

The Inside fold

This one was great fun to create and now I just hope my daughter-in-love likes it!  Next 'up' on my list is another one for my other daughter-in-love. 

Today I am linking up with Super Mom - No Cape's  Stitchery Link Party HERE.   

Today your quote is from Chritiane Collange.... "We have a tendency to obscure the forest of simple joys with the trees of problems"

Your DIL is one lucky girl - she will be over-the-moon with her specially designed hussif - it's beautiful MA!
The fabrics, embellishments and colours are perfect.
How kind you are.
Much love

It's beautiful and so lovingly made.
Now I know what a hussif is! My father had one that had been in his RAF kit during World War II, but he called it a housewife! I should have made the connection. Needless to say yours is a lot more decorative than his!

Beautifully created Mary Anne. The inside is elegant also.
Pooh Bear looks quite proud to be there and Nemo has the cat bluffed.
Lucky DIL.
