I have a mini and it's spectacular!!

A lovely padded envelope arrived in the mail yesterday. I thought it was the purse frames I had been waiting for but instead I got an amazing surprised. As I was so enthusiastic once I realised who the parcel was from, I don't have pics of the lovely way it was wrapped but look what loveliness was enclosed....

 Making a mini for your new frame-fantastic, getting a mini from a wonderful bloggy friend-priceless!!
So who sent me this beautiful mini and this super cute bookmark?
-The lovely Fiona from Bubz rugz. The quilting and piecing is amazing and the stitching is perfect too. That better be it for the adjectives and punctuation.
Huge cyber hug to Fiona! Love them.



Here is a little peak at my progress on my purse swap.
I have to post a pic on the flickr group and then hopefully my secret swap partner will comment on whether they like it so far or not. My partner has definite likes and dislikes so I have tried to cater for that and add a little of my imagination to the mix. 
If you want to see some of the lovely purses being made and put in the wish list mosaics here is the link http://www.flickr.com/groups/in-the-frame-purse-swap/pool/with/7353041556/#photo_7353041556

Happy days...
