Lucky me

Don't be fooled by the title of this blog. I'm not one of those people who are forever winning things; you know the ones, everything from chook raffles to Lotto - they always seem to be in luck. Not me. Anyway, imagine my surprise last October when I actually did have a bit of luck- I won an iPad. Not that this was something I desperately wanted or anything - I really didn't know too much about them (I'm not really a technophobe although my mobile phone doesn't even have a camera- it's not that smart!) but decided I should embrace my good fortune and find out.

I have discovered that on my iPad I can

  • read books

  • listen to music

  • log on to the internet (I haven't done it yet- I will when I find out how to)

  • keep an electronic diary

  • store photos

and much, much more!

Of course if I want to take it anywhere it needs protecting, doesn't it? So I made it a nice padded pouch using some floral fabric (once a furnishing sample) and the synthetic felt from a tote bag received as a free gift with my favourite magazine. Sandwiched between felt and fabric is some cotton quilt wadding to keep the screen from getting scratched. Oh, and a little applique cut from the floral fabric, just so it doesn't look too boring on the outside.

  1. How exciting to win something you wouldn't really buy for yourself and get to learn something new all at the same time! Lovely case you've made to fit it too.

    Thanks for stopping by :)
