back in the saddle

It's been a while, and I was starting to think that I might just let this blog gather dust...but armed with a nifty little toy (an iPad mini), I'm thinking I may be able to do some short and (hopefully) sweet posts in the months to come.

Last night I made a first pass at a sleeve for the was a bit of a bust since I just made it up as I went and it turned out too small.  All of my brain energy is going elsewhere right now, so I really need patterns.

A little fabric love for my work life: made a clutch/sleeve for my new iPad mini, pattern by schoolhouse patterns on etsy.

Second try was a success! I used the iPad mini clutch pattern from schoolhouse patterns' etsy was just the ticket, and includes a little front pocket perfect for my VGA adapter, or any accessory you want to keep close at hand. Highly recommended! As you can see, some of my current teaching -- Victorian women's ghost stories -- is impacting my fabric choices.

Finally, I'm taking the plunge and "claiming" my blog on bloglovin' action that still seems bizarre to me, but here it goes...

I don't understand the whole blog login thing either, but have also "claimed" mine :)

I blog from my IPAD with blog touch an ap I paid 4.99 for. It works great and the pictures are easy to insert, I blogged about it a few weeks ago I was so excited because the home computerized have is terribly slow and I use my IPAD for everything. My husband calls the dog the IPAD orphan.
