It's been a few days since my last post, so I thought I'd check in. I finished the kids' capes, and they had a great time playing "superhero". It's funny how they can put things together. They were superheroes playing house, you know it was sort of like The Incredibles, each with their own super power.
I had wanted to buy something for myself with a bit of the money that was left from Mom's life insurance. Mary had been talking about the Kindle Paper White, and how she hoped to get one when she sold her books back after then end of this semester. I was fascinated with the light, and so checked into it. And decided that's what I needed. It's smaller than my other Kindle, so now I need to make a nice bag to fit it. Mary is graduating from Drexel this weekend with her Master's Degree in Elementary Ed., and in checking discovered that she didn't have enough coming back from her books to buy the Paper White she wanted. Don't you think this would make an excellent graduation gift??
(One of them here). I ordered fabric from ebay, this orange and a lime green to match for the sashing. Today I begin the embroidery. Have a great day.
