Do you KiNdLe ?

Hey Everyone!

I hope you all had a great Easter last weekend {with family/friends or both!}. This was my family's first year without all of us.  Most of you know, I helped my middle son move to New York this past October {I'm doing okay - still getting used to it}. Thank goodness for Skype & Tango and all the other video chat apps that we can take advantage of these days.
I'm also glad that he has lots of new friends and even one special girl to spend time with, especially when a day comes up that is traditionally spent with family.  Truth be told, he hasn't had much time to get homesick.  He works really long hours and it seems like someone is always visiting him from Orange County! Amazing how accommodating his 400 sq ft apartment is! Luckily his design background contributes to good use of space.
Okay... I could go on and on about my boys but I won't be "that Mom"...... haha.
New in my shop:  Kindle Cover!  Do you have a Kindle?  I just LOVE mine.  My sweet boys {ooops, here I go again} gave one to me last August as a birthday gift.  I especially like downloading all the free eBooks available.  I will never read everything I've downloaded.  Well, I shouldn't say that because my Kindle can read to me so I can take advantage of my 20-30 min commute to and from work.

I made this one with a Michael Miller fabric called Ooh La La.  I think it's so pretty!  I lined the inside with a purple small wale corduroy and two layers of batting.  I took a close up of the hand painted button for the ribbon closure.  On the back where I attached the ribbon, I covered up the stitch rows with a little heart "jewel".  Can never have too much sparkle!

Of course I can make a custom cover.  I know not everyone appreciates flowers and bling and pink and sparkle as much as I do  :-)

Until Next Time,
