So having never made a framed purse before. And having always been a little fearful because they look tricky. (There is glue and tricky hardware to muster for goodness sake!) So earlier today, before I thought too hard and talked myself out of it I signed up for In the Frame Swap. I've already ordered supplies. I've read tutorials and I've also made this rather lovely mosaic.
Click on the picture above and it will take you to flickr,
where you can view details of who's work these beauties are.
I am set to make a practice one as soon as my supplies arrive. Yes, I am nervous, but excited too. I'm encouraged by the fact many people signing up have only made one pouch before (doing the class at the retreat) so it's not like I'm the only novice in the group. Wish me luck though!
