************************As much as I appreciate all that technology has offered me in the last few years, I resent how much time it takes away from the here and now. For this reason, I've prided myself on using an antiquated cell phone, no texting, etc. After many break downs (phones) and lots of thought, I now have an iphone. eek! Today, I have another request for your input. Help, please! I'm determined to not let it be a time suck... but I'm very new at this. If you have any favorite apps or uses, I'd love to hear. I don't even have a cover for it... so I'm open to those ideas to. I'm very enamored with this bamboo Vers, but buying anything more felt a little over the top for one day.
Before I took it out to town, I thought I'd better protect this investment in some way. I made a temporary 10 minute slip cover with a little bit of that green leather I love from a long ago Salvation Army find. I was in too much of a rush to insert a leather needle into my machine, so I blame any imperfections on my impatience. After all, the plan was for a quick fix. But when I took a second to stamp it with my gingko design, I decided it was a very nice quick fix. I can't remember stamping on leather before... ooooh that was fun! I set it with an iron and the pigment of the ink settled into the surface so beautifully. I'll be experimenting with this some more... might need another trip to the thrift store for more old leather. Thanks again for any tips you might have!
