Not long after last night’s post I decided I’d start the sewing for my frame purse, and was extremely happy to have finished it half an hour later!  I decided to leave the gluing until today when I could do it in daylight, thus I tackled it this morning:

I’m happy with how it turned out, and that I managed to avoid the dreaded glue-ooze!  Still, it has reassured me that a production line of purses should be pretty quick to put together :o)  

I’m glad I changed how I sewed it together, that is sewing the inner and outer right sides together and turning the right way out through a small opening that I slip stitched shut.  It made it nice and clean around the hinges, and also nice and easy to stuff into the frame!

I also had a play about with wonky stars for a siggy block today to go with my Sew Bee Joyful block:

It was my first attempt at these, and I think I need to learn to measure the ‘point pieces’ to cross 1/4″ up from the edge, rather than trying to eyeball it!  I’ve now got my Piece Bee With You siggy block to do.

I’ve also decided to sign up for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.  Their equivalent day in May netted me so many new friends and blogs to read, that I can only encourage everyone to take part, in hopping around to visit people as much as giving things away.  They’ve changed up how it works for this round, to try and make it easier for people to find things specific to them, and it’s only open to blogs this time round.  I already have my item picked out, now I just have to think up a truly inventive question to ask people to comment on ;o)
