You may ask... what is a Hussif? It is a Victorian sewing kit.
My silver thimble which I use all the time, when I am sewing.
Many years ago, I went to a weekend class with a group of Ladies and we all made a Hussif.
We had a lovely time and this has been a useful place to keep all my sewing paraphernalia.
They have little pockets for everything scissors, measuring tape, pins, needles, and thimble.
All the stitching was done by hand, on cream silk and I embroidered little roses and buds on mine.
In the 1800's girls would make these, out of left over silks to store their sewing supplies.
Unless we are creating we are not fully alive

Wishing all my friends, a very happy week
