In the Frame Purse Swap

I've been really bad on this swap...
( but will have to say that Nicky and Helen have done a wonderful job in running it!)
It has taken me forever to get myself organised and with far too much procrastination over the past few weeks I finally got myself organised. (with my list of things to achieve for the  'I must do' list.)

A combination of two weeks holidays, finishing up in one job and starting another (yes there are jobs out there in Ireland....believe it or not)  has got me out of any routine and getting sewing time has been a bit of a hit and miss.
Now back to the Frame Purse Swap...Here it second ever purse made and I know that there will be many more ( because I went a bit bananas on ordering so many frames.)

Lots of photos so will let them do the talking....I was very happy the way it turned out. 
fabric used was
Ruby Star Spring Melody Miller
Essex Linen
Quilt Blocks (lining) Moda
All fabric was bought from M is for Make.

  2. oh wow - your second purse ever?! You give me hope - I know there is one coming up in the zakka sew-along & I am anxious to try it!
