Me, purses, frames, glue!? Rumours of competence here have been greatly exaggerated. And I read the label on that glue tube - it says not for children and if you look very closely at the very, very tiny small print I am sure they mention my name too. I had that stuff everywhere but where it was supposed to go. I needed to be back at the retreat with the ever so competent Katy guiding me through again because I am sure it went so much better the first time round.
But it is glued. No going back now. Of course I could make a different purse, but I shall sit and pick glue off the frame of this one tonight, and wait and see if my partner comments on the way it looks now.
I lined the purse with some fuschia Flowers and Butterflies from Soul Garden that I got from the incomparable Fluffy Sheep Quilting. I felt that the lining had to stand up to all those bright hexies on the outside. I will have to have a think about making a strap for it what with those little hoops telling me that this frame needs one. It will give me something to contemplate while I am picking away at that glue tonight.
