I bought myself a Nook for Mother's Day. I have put off getting one thinking I would never use it. I was wrong. I have read 6 books is 3 weeks. Watched 3 movies and 5 comedy shows while sewing. I don't think I have read one whole book in 6 years. I also got my 2 yr old grandson to sit still and watch Thomas the Train while I was FMQ. Win Win!
My DD#1 came down from the north with family for DGS 8th birthday. We got him a Nook as well. He was getting behind in his reading. He is all about technology, so I am hoping he will read more. It was fun to celebrate this milestone with him. Found out I have NO eye hand coordination for video games at all.
I wanted to make him a bag to protect his Nook like the one I made for myself. His mother also wanted one. I adapted a pattern I found online at Moda Bakeshop by Kimberly Walus I made it a little wider because my DD has a protective rubberized cover on hers. I did decorative stitching on DD and DGS. It was a lot of fun using those stitches on my machine. My bag is plain but Celestial. I have to make a few more for my other 2 daughters. They were just so much fun to make!
