Frame purse love!

Late last night I was in the middle of gluing fabric ready to finish my first ever frame purse and woke up this morning to this little lovely!!!

Making these could become somewhat of an addiction - I am in love with it!
Although the gluing part was the most scary, knowing whether or not I had put too much on or not enough and after pushing the fabric in the frame channel and waiting for it to take hold I seemed to get this mad urgency to want to pull at the fabric just to see if it had stuck yet!! The last part of making was to add the cord to the frame channel and after completing a little section I didn't think the finish looked that nice so I took it out. All seems to be secure without it!
Would be interested to know if you have made a frame purse do you use cord?
