Monday, Monday...


Recent purchase:  a new laptop computer.   
Windows 8 - I LOVE it !  
Have always wanted one of those pretty, feminine, quilted laptop cases, so decided to make myself one.   
Went through my stash and found some pre-quilted fabric, bought several years ago to make a tote bag.
Here's what I devised:

A sleeve, with Velcro closure.
The most time-consuming detail is the bias-cut binding, which I hand-stitched after turning.
And I even have enough quilted and lining fabric to make a matching tote to carry the sleeve - probably, even enough to make a matching wallet too !  
 Possibilities are endless !

It's been a long winter in New England, as it has all over the country. 
My Grandma M taught me to knit over 50 years ago !   
Motivated by a dear friend, I pulled out the knitting needles and taught myself to make my  first pair of socks:
Time to get back to stitching. 
And Sew On... 


  1. How fun! Your laptop sleeve looks just perfect for your new laptop as well as your socks are so pretty! As living in the heat desert, I shouldn't even think about playing with wools, but it's so hard to resist from knitting once seeing such heart warming project. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work!!

  2. Good on you!!! Bet it won't stay with only 1 pair hihihi! Addictive thing knitting socks!! Still cold here in Holland. Hmmmm your laptop sleeve gives me an idea for my reader .... maybe ..... thanks for the idea!! Hugs, Daniëlle
