My Christmas gift from Tom this year was a Kindle! Anyone who knows me would definitely agree this is a great gift because I love to read. We spent two weeks in Hawaii for our honeymoon and my biggest complaint was that I couldn't pack enough books because of the weight! I think this is what inspired him to get me the Kindle. Well anyways, it seemed so small and vulnerable in my purse and it somehow got a scratch on the keyboard, so I went to work and created a nice padded case for it!
I've really been loving patchwork and quilting lately (you may notice I've added some quilting blogs to my favorites!) and of course I love pink, so this is what I came up with. The base is a nice soft, heavy linen in sort of a creamy grey shade. I added two layers of cotton quilt batting and sandwiched it with a plain muslin before quilting, just because batting on the bottom always clogs up my machine.
The inside is this wonderfully soft pink cotton from Prints Charming. I'm not sure why, but it is really the softest quilting cotton fabric I've ever used. That's why I chose it for the lining.
This is definitely going to be a new product for london purple. In fact, I've already got a commission for one! Someone at work saw it and will be ordering one for his daughter-in-law, with Steelers fabric! Speaking of the Steelers, as it's Super Bowl Sunday, I must say Go Packers! (I'm from Cleveland, it's just on principal.)
And it's been awhile since I've had some kitteh love in the blog. This is DST, remember there are some pictures of him from way back when he was teeny tiny? Now he's big and a little bit fuzzy, and he became really attached to this piece of tulle. So we keep it in the living room for him to lay in =D
