This is my other finished make this week - a Kindle case. I used some lovely text fabric given to me last year by Avril - thanks, Avril! I'm planning to show a quick tutorial for this later in the week, just in case someone else wants to make one. Despite my DS suggesting that I make a pocket for the cable, as my Kindle usage is likely to be 'ballet mum' style use (waiting for DDs to finish various clubs or lessons) I made a case that is quite light, and which doesn't have space for cable / plug, but which will repel biscuit crumbs and apple pips which inevitably form part of my luggage when toting snacks, entertainment and ballet kits about!
Avril also ran a workshop at my local quilting group to demonstrate 3d windmills, which was an enjoyable chance to sit and stitch and chat.
Talking to Avril and another quilting friend, I was struck again by how enjoyable they are finding their textile courses. I love the idea of taking a C&G course like this one, I was quite interested in the course run by the Open College of Arts, but I'm not sure that I'm quite ready to take the plunge yet. It's not that I wouldn't enjoy it, just that I don't know if I've got the energy to do it. Perhaps I'll wait until the DDs are a little older, although I'm not sure that they will take any less of my energy then!
