Done, done, AND done!!



Above - Front of hussif, folded








Left - the back




Below - the inside fold




Outside, unfolded...



Inside...


I think this will be the last hussif, at least in the foreseeable future anyway.  I don't know anyone else in my immediate circle that are 'in need' of one.  This has ended up being one of my favourites out of all the ones I've made - maybe 8 of them, not sure because I've lost count.

Today your quote is from Jerry Ellis..."We're all only fragile threads, but what a tapestry we make"

What a wonderful finish! Your hussif is fantastic! (I do have a confession... Every time I entered a craft or sewing store, I looked for sewing themed patterns that I might be able to send your way. Unfortunately, I failed to find any - but you managed to find plenty of sewing themed ideas for this beauty!)

It is gorgeous. Congratulations!

Yep, that's my favorite of all!

Stunning, simply beautiful! Those little pops of red buttons really make the black/white theme wonderful. It's been great watching it progress along.
