I ran into my boss on the way to the chemist (not literally as I was in the car at the time!) and then it was back home feeling deflated until I saw the post man had been. One small package which looked suspiciously like it might be my purse from my partner in the In the Frame Purse Swap. I ripped off the out layer and inside was this:
I have no idea how I managed to put this down, go get my camera and put a memory card in it
and take a snap before I unwrapped!
And this is what was inside. Try not to be too jealous!
All the way from Northern Ireland and Karen who blogs at Listen to the Birds Sing. (yay I have a new blog to follow now too!) First off there is the gorgeous pouch made with several Liberty fabrics. Of course you know how I hate Liberty fabrics so much. Not!!! And they are even prettier than the photos show. I remember this purse in the swap because I got very distracted by the pretty dangly bits. This is a sew in frame. I've not tried sew in frames before. I hadn't realised they are solid on the inside part of the frame. This must make getting the needle in and out of the holes challenging! Must try this - and as luck would have it Karen must have thought I'd want to try it because she included a cute little frame. There was also two lovely Liberty Buttons in the same fabrics. I've always fancied covering some buttons myself. I wonder how easy it is? It could become a new addiction as I replace all my boring buttons with fun fabric covered ones!
Isn't the bottom fab?!
So thank you so much Karen for such a fab pouch and goodies. Completely made my day!
My Mum saw the pouch and asked me what I was going to use it for. I said, keeping treasures in it. Then popped the Liberty Buttons inside, with a smile.
