He bought himself a Kindle last weekend. He has been trying to get me to get one, but I love books. Not sure I would really enjoy another electronic gadget. So he got one and had me try it out. I think he finally understands that I really don't want one, at least not now. (grin) He has been using it and really loves it. I have never seen him so interested in reading. LOL I love it when he finds something he really enjoys. Anyway, he got a Kindle then asked me to make him a case for it. They want $40 for a case. I used some canvas like fabric for the outside and flannel for the inside lining. I wanted it to be tough, yet soft on the inside so as not to scratch the screen. I used an 1/8 inch thick foam in place of batting. Oh goodness, this was rough sewing. I thought it was the foam causing all the problems, but Kevin pointed out that it more than likely was the canvas like fabric (It might have been called duck cloth. I just can't remember). I think it turned out pretty good and Kevin loves it. This is the front.
I also wanted to ask everyone to please pray for the people of Japan. They are going through a horrible time right now. Also I having been thinking about a commenter on my blog named Julie Fukuda. If anyone has heard from Julie since this earthquake and tsunami please comment here. Julie lives in Japan.
About a year ago, I used to read a blog from a quilter in Japan named Tanya. She posted lots of interesting things about Japan. She was married, had a son and daughter (I think they were in the States), had several cats and a dog. I lost her blog address when I switched to my laptop about a year ago. If anyone knows the lady I am talking about and her blog address, I would sure appreciate if you commented on it or emailed it to me. I sure enjoyed reading her blog.
That is all for tonight. Thank you for visiting. Please come again. Everyone have a wonderful weekend.
