This is the finished object from the weekend that involved glue. It's called an Etui; in January Andrea (Welsh Quilter) showed a picture on her blog of one she had made as a gift. I really, really wanted the pattern, so she sent me a copy, with the designer's permission. And I read the instructions and thought 'So much Gloo-ing! I can't!!' And so the pattern, and all the cut out pieces sat in a drawer for months until I found enough courage to tackle it.I sort of came to terms with the sticky fingers and drips and reeks, but I can't say I enjoyed it much. I kept thinking of ways I could make another one without the glue, because I love the finished item, just not the process of making it. Maybe I could sew it all together.....

It's pretty and just what I needed to keep all my hand sewing stuff in one place, so thank you Andrea, I love it. And I may even make another one soon.

Andrea's daughter Jessica is fundraising for a trip to Africa, and Andrea has donated a lovely quilt to raffle. I have requested a few tickets, and this lovely quilt might be mine. But I never win anything, darn it; guess that makes better odds for everyone else with a ticket.

It's really nice and it looks like you handled all that glue beautifully!

Just gorgeous Keryn, you've made it up beautifully. Well done for coping so well with all the glue.

Hurray Keryn - I must say I didn't like the glueing bit either. But it came out lovely and worth the effort. I think your request for a ticket has gone astray somewhere - never received it :-(

do you remember when fabric postcards were the rage? the stiff "interfacing" used in that could be purchased with or without fuse-able on both sides. I've wondered if that could be used, and fused to create such fun items
