Ta Dah!!!! (Part One)

Well, folks, you will be ecstatic to know that you won't have to suffer any longer!  The hussif is done...done, done AND done!!  And you thought it would never end!! 

I thought about dividing the pictures up over
two days, but in the interest of not subjecting
you to any more of it, I will
do two posts today.
(otherwise the pictures load might be too heavy for
some computers).

So, here goes...


The above photo shows the entire hussif opened out (measures approx. 9x23" when open).
As you can see, there are a LOT of roses!!
I decided to add a piece of lace around the outside but my stash
didn't yield anything that was wide enough so I had to settle
for something narrow.  At some point I might add
on another wider lace, which I think would make it
look better.


 The hussif is a three-fold design and here you
can see the front fold.
The whole thing is a chubby little lady so I
opted not to have any sort of closure so I could
allow room inside for expansion as I added
sewing supplies.

This shows the middle fold on the back.


 This part is the inner fold which is
mostly hidden from view unless 
you open the hussif up to see inside.

Below are a couple more close-ups of the outside...

 You can click on the pictures to embiggen them
should you so desire!

Stay tuned....part two is on the way
(along with today's quote).
