What's it?

Before we get started a small apology. I didnt' drag out the camera to make these pictures..they are phone pics. Sorry!

I made a little project this evening. (Like I really had the time to spare.)

I saw one of these on a friend's Flickr photos. He had provided a link to the pattern. Yaay! I just had to make my own

Now the question is; What is it? or
What's it? ha ha

Well maybe this next picture will make it clearer.

It is a nice little quilted pouch for my Kindle - That is an electronic book for those of you who may have been hiding under a rock and missed Amazon.com's big seller. I got the Kindle as a birthday gift and I do love this device. I have read lots of books on in. I didn't have to buy all of them as there are free books both on the internet AND from Amazon. Now I love it more since I have a quilty case for it.

Oh, this will be no surprise to you. I didn't exactly follow the directions. I changed it a bit. LOL. I can't help myself.

Gee....I am getting nearer and nearer to having 200 posts. Whatever could that mean?

I guess I am behind the times, I didn't know what a kiddle was. I want to make a case for my husband lap top.....it is in the thinking process.....that is scarey. Love your case...did a super job and yes, it was no surprise that you changed a few things, that is what makes it yours.

I've always wondered if an electronic book would still hold my attention the same way. Do you notice any extreme eye strain like what is associated with a computer? My husband and I own a little over 2,000 books and I am very sad to say that as a librarians sister I know books purchased today will be gone in fifty years. (Cheap dyes and paper) I'd love to find a more economical solution. Can't wait to hear more about this little gadget.

I've been toying with the idea of a Kindle or Sony electronic book reader, BUT...I use the library so much and I shudder to think of the cost of books for such a device. Where can I go to look at the list of free offerings for these??? Nice case you made for it!!! (I see I've surpassed 200 posts and will hae some kind of giveaway soon, too. I need to get thinking about that.)

Good Job Gene! You are indeed talented. I need a pattern for almost everything I do. A give-a-way on the horizon????? Wonder what it will be?????

Oh, I have been wanting a Kindle. In fact, the bag I made a couple of weeks ago was designed to be large enough to carry one, if I ever get one. LOL
