Bloke stuff

Another day off work! I finally used up the majority of the Time I was owed. Today is just a normal day off. :-) I might settle with my cross stitch and a movie this afternoon.
Remember my Hunney asked me to make two kindle covers? Well I got stuck in after work yesterday. Two completed kindle covers before he got home.
Nothing fancy, I did a little straight line quilting on the inner fabric and bagged it out, then a quick fold and stitched around the edge. I'll need to add some poppers/press studs, but that's it, they're done. Quick and easy.
So, buoyed on by that success I got stuck in again this morning and made a cover for the i-pad too.
In exactly the same way. :-)
Three cute little sleeping bags for the boys electronic toys.
I think I'll go play in my scraps box for the remainder of the morning. I looked back to here, where I made certain commitments and I reckon I'm allowed a new start. By making Mums latest creation double sided I killed two birds there and I've finished Freya's quilt, so I must be entitled to an upstairs start. No downstairs starts though. I need to finish a cross stitch before I can do that. Just because I called time on one and gave it away doesn't make it a finish.
Playtime. Have a good day! :-)

Wow! They have turned out so well for such a simple project. The fabric is a perfect choice. Most appropriate. Watch out, you may get more orders from Tony's mates.

Lovely looking fabric.

I never have the patience to finish things off so well. My big downfall.
