For Christmas/birthday my brother & SIL got me a Kindle! wootwoot. I generally prefer to listen to books while I work in the quilt studio but since I also read before bed and the thing can load games, cookbooks, etc, in addition to my mystery books, I'm enjoying it. My dear friend the librarian, on the other hand, is shaking her head at the demise of the actual paper book as library patronage continues to decline...
Denise - can you send me that link for free book suggestions again? I sent it to my SIL who never got it and I can't find the email in my sent box. Thanks!
Of course, you know this means I need to make a cover for my Kindle...and you know it's going to have hexies, right?! I had first thought of all purple but then thought to have purple and green. I then thought I should do some kind of hexie design and liked how the diamond looks when made into a rectangle about Kindle size. Then I slapped myself on the forehead and said KISS - we are back to just purple and green...or maybe just purple.
I'll be basing my cover, really more of a pocket, on this tutorial: http://frizzylizzie.blogspot.com/2011/02/patchwork-kindle-cover-tutorial.html
