This is the purse framer. Now it's out of the corner I am not sure whether it is a praying mantis or some kind of four legged animal. It managed to bite a hole in my brand new top though.
I've lined its 'mouth' with felt to soften the squeeze and it looks like it's all going to work.
Quite pleased that I didn't consign it to the scrapheap years ago in a fit of pique. See there is a reason for hoarding.
