My Hussif

Three years or so ago while looking through the Crazy Quilt on line magazine I spotted several hussifs and fell in love with them. In preparation for Marcy Tilton's surface design workshop, I started the crazy quilt block. While at Design Outside the Lines, I silk screened some of the silk. When I came home from Taos, New Mexico, I made the patterns for the pockets and flaps and began the process of embroidering and sewing on each of the pieces. Yesterday, I sewed on the cording and attached the front to the back and today I did the last of the finishing work, sewing on the button and closing up the hole that I used to turn the piece right side out.

Dog Sitting

I spent this week with my son's two Bernese Mountain Dogs so that he, his wife and three children could go on vacation and not worry about their furry children. When I wasn't taking care of them and paying attention to them, I worked on some projects, a quilt block for my calendar quilt, a doll dress for Adina's Bitty Baby doll, and a tape measure that will be a gift for a friend.
