A variation on a theme

Work and an upcoming job interview seems to be turning me into a slow blogger.  The job interview is freaking me out,  I cannot seem to focus on anything for very long and am wayyyyy behind on my blog reading.

I do have something to show for my week long absence though, a little purse action.  I broke into my growing stash of Echino and Melody Miller.

Christmas pressies galore!
For the bigger frames I used the same pattern I made following Emily's instructions.  For the smaller frame, I again used Emily's instructions but adjusted it a bit width wise.

The MM typewriter is my fave, although it isn't staying with me ;-)


For the lining I picked out some Summersville, pink pezzy and Metro circles...


I have another 4 smaller frames to make, but I have to confess I am a little bored of making these now.  So yesterday I started on the makeup bags instead....


The plan is to finish these today and then the rest of the week will be dedicated to hyperventilating about the dreaded interview.
