In the frame

For those of you not already in the swap, I signed up for the 'In the Frame Purse Swap' on Flickr

and this is my inspirational mosaic for my partner ...


following the success and whirlwind (not quite right word for this location right now - tornado in Lincolnshire) of the Purse classes run by the talented and inspirational Katy at the FQR, this swap is just the tonic to feed those desires for something pretty ...

don't ya think? 

So, using all my experience of making one whole purse, Di of Willowbeck Designs came over earlier this week to get a few clues on how to make one....

and some lunch, cake and whole lot a laughing too!


so the practice went well, apart from not following instructions, doing it all wrong - ish, it actually turned out pretty well ...


in fact, I really DO like this one, I might just have to use it myself, esepcially as the Diva definitely hasn't bagged it!

There are one or two other swaps I signed up to, but more on those another day.

Happy Weekend!

Sounds like you and Di had a great time! Purse lessons paid off too :-)

I love that you did not follow the instructions and did it all wrong, perfect way to show Di! It is lovely, I am going to have to figure out how to make these too one day.

I love, love, love the green fabric you used with the pop of pink on the lining. Great choices!

Nicky said...

I taught my friend badly as I wasn't paying enough attention but it all ended well! Keep it and make some others!
