Completed page 14 of Spirit of Winter
Did a little bit more on this, not much done since last update:
This is my most creative project ever attempted. My own design of a hussif. Below shows what the inside will look like. From left to right, first pocket is a double pocket, very proud I managed to figure how to do this. I have crochet hooks in the part of the pocket that opens at the top and a pinwheel in the part that opens at the side.
Next to it is a pocket for pens/pencils for transferring patterns. I've also just taught myself to crochet, so have made a crocheted thimble holder. I've not yet attached this, but this will be attached above the pen pocket.
Next to this is a pincushion with Silk Ribbon embroidery on it, below the pincushion is a felted needlebook. Both the pincushion and needlebook are attached to the hussif with Velcro so I can remove these and use them separately when required.
At the far right is a pocket for scissors and below that a pocket for a pencil sharpener (for transferring pencils) or Thread Heaven.

This will be the front of the hussif, still have a couple more leaves and remainder of stems to embroider.
