Crafting in the new year

I made a table runner in January. These are all scrap material. It is quilted.
Then I found this great tutorial for making a clutch purse using metal frames. We had an old handbag and I got the frame from that. My first attempt I used pliers and it was horribly disappointing. Removed and googled a bit and came up with this:
And I made this! Isn't it So GREAT???? Thanks Lisa! I got some glue on the fabric cos I was so in a hurry to get the fabric in the frame before my son woke up from his nap. But I did the whole thing from finding fabric to finishing in 2 hours flat! It is my new fave handbag!! By the way the material is from a ari jacket pice and is silk.
I had a lovely time making it. Take care.

I am thankful..

I am thankful ,

for the way my son's face lights up when he sees I have come home from "campus".

for my parents for so many things I cannot begin to mention.

for Chuty , my sis, for always supporting me.

for my brother for caring.

for Puwa, for being so peaceful to share a room with.

for Lilly, for never letting us down.

for always having a safe place to retreat to, whatever harsh way, life may have treated me.

for having the strength in me to just carry on inspite of everything.
