Back in February, I made my husband a Kobo case. His Kobo is actually an Android tablet, which means it can be used for lots of things besides reading books.
For example, cat games!
Here is Grayson, playing a cat game for the tablet. If he catches the dot, it explodes and "Meows" at him. He loves it.
I decided that I was missing out on the fun, so I got one of these Kobo's of my own. Then I needed a case.
Here it is, made from scraps from other projects. Recognize some from the Radiant Purple runner?
Of course, it had to have a cat on it, and a bird on the other side to entertain the cat.
I used some of the fancy stitches on my machine to quilt it. There is lots of purple and fuchsia in those scraps and in the thread.
Best of all, when I finished, it was a perfect fit. I am told it looks "a little feminine" , so I guess I don't have to worry about him taking it if he can't find his own. I like the design so I am thinking of trying a clutch bag in a similar style, next.
We had heavy rains yesterday and it was cloudy Monday afternoon. I was doing the quilting and having a hard time seeing what I was doing. I was blaming the weather, until it finally dawned on me, yesterday afternoon, that the light on my machine had burnt out. I pulled the bulb, and my sweetie found a replacement in his collection of stray auto parts. Problem solved!
I took some of the strips I was cutting last week and added a few other scraps. However, people keep expecting me to work at what they want done, instead of letting me have fun. So I haven't gotten very far.
I am not sure I have exactly what I want yet, so I thought a picture might help me figure out what isn't working. I am not happy with the first and third strip from the left, but I don't hate them either. Maybe I just need to switch them. I will leave it until tomorrow, and look at it again.
Meanwhile, I started a shawl back in the fall. My Ravelry Project page says I started it September 29. At some point, I made a mistake, put a safety line in and ripped it back. Then I put it in the corner to think about what it had done! Last week, I picked it up again, figured out what was wrong, and started back at it.
