Yes, another scarf...

Here is another one of my latest creations.  This scarf is a Christmas gift to my niece Ellie.  I love the colors and feel of this yarn.  I think it would not be too embarrassing to wear for a girl her age :) The stitch I used on this is a Turkish Stitch or Lace-like.  Very easy, and works well for a scarf.  Again, I can't wait to see it on her!

One more scarf to go for my gift giving...I think.  I actually enjoy making these scarves because it gives me an opportunity to practice different stitches.  Nothing wrong with that since I am a newbie!

Project of the day

Since it was near 95 degrees today, I thought today would be the perfect day to start and finish my next project.  

With some scrap denim fabric, fabric and quilt interface that I bought, I made a case for our iPad mini.  

It was pretty simple taking only a couple of hours to complete.  The interfacing provides a nice protective padding.  I didn't want to add any clasp to hold the flap closed since I was afraid that it could damage the iPad if it was sandwiched between something.  So a fold in of the flap works for now.

This is really Sam's toy, so I am sure he will sport this case proudly in front of his clients :))
