When is glue and stick not glue and stick?

Why it's when you're invited to one of Gail's get togethers. I toddled along thinking I was in for a day of getting messy with glue when she really meant we were tackling something that needed painting and SEWING! Boy was I totally out of my comfort zone. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks to everyone for being so generous with their stash . I turned up poorly prepared. Well if you thought you were going to glue and stick what would you have taken...... yes glue and possibly double sided tape. I've linked the instructions here to make this lovely dickie bird as I was so over whelmed. He's proudly hanging in my craft room and I love him.
Next session we're making a notelet box and notelets, anyone any suggestions what I should take along?

Thanks for dropping by please feel free to leave a comment I love reading them
