Random title eh, but it does what it says on the box. Firstly, here are my very very very late March orts! Joining in, as always, with the TUSAL.
No pretty jar at the moment, my lovely canning jar was far to heavy and bulky to bring back from France! A replacement will have to be found.
I got a kindle as a late Christmas present from my parents just before we flew back to NZ. It took me a long time to convert to e-reading, and I have to admit I still haven't given up on normal books. But. . . it is useful for our current lifestyle. There is such a difference between taking a 200 gram kindle in your carry-on luggage for long haul flights than taking at least 3 large books (I read fast, I got through 4 and a half books during my last long haul) with a combined weight of at least 1.5kg!
Ever since I got the dear object though I've been slightly afraid of dropping it somehow or it just slipping out of my hands. Solution. . . a cover, made by me, using this excellent tutorial.
This is the front. . .
And this is the inside, with all of its elastic straps and pocketed glory . . .
I love it. I think it's one of my favourite sewen objects that I've made myself. It's ultra-sturdy, practical and I don't feel like my kindle is going to go hitting the floor constantly anymore. Plus with the cover it feels kinda (kinda) like I'm reading an actual book
Back soon with crochet and stitching and stuff. Hope you all enjoy your Easter weekend and remember the true reason for the celebration, beyond all the chocolatey goodness. I'm heading away with hubby this evening to join the rest of my family in beautiful Lake Tekapo.
