NEW eReader Cases!

Our long-anticipated eReader Case Design Set was released today! This design can be stitched with even the smallest of hoops since it comes with E-A-S-Y instructions to make the case on your sewing machine, as well as 2 different sets of Monogram Appliques to stitch with your embroidery machine - one feminine, the other masculine. The case fits Nooks and Kindles with some extra room to spare for cords and other accessories, and it also fits the Nook Color nice and snug. Fusible fleece is used in this case to cushion your eReader and a zipper is stitched in (easily, I promise!) to keep it from falling out. You're going to love how easy these are to make!

My Little Cub Scout

Last night was the annual Cub Scouts Bake-Off in my son's troop where each scout makes a baked good with a parent and brings them to the pack meeting for judging. Since Thomas is a Bear Cub, we were assigned to make a cake. We decided on a favorite of ours; Cake Pops! We decorated them to look like Lego characters and they turned out really cute! And they were a HUGE hit with the Scouts!

The best part of the night (even better than sampling all of the treats at the meeting) was that Thomas won for the Most Creative cake! Hurray to Thomas!! Here's his "trophy".... ;-)
