Do you ever have that reaction when you enter a giveaway on a quilt blog, along with a vast number of other people and then a few days later up pops the results blog post in your Reader and you open it up and there is your name?
Admittedly it doesn't happen that often...or as often as I would like it to ;-)
But it did happen last month on the Sewmamasew blog.
I won this.
Well actually that's not strictly true.
What I won was the chance to choose two co-ordinating fabrics which would be made up into my very own, made especially for me, iPad cover.
Not only is it a cover but it is also a stand.
I really genuinely do think this is such a good idea.
Going slightly off-topic on this one, when you first get an iPad you have to 'sync' it on iTunes. My husband has an iTunes account but I don't so we 'synced' it on his iMac. Unfortunately, what that has meant is that my email account on my iPad appears to have his name on it as the sender of the emails.
'I can live with that' I thought. Until that is I posted about the beautiful Japanese fabrics I bought. Leila
asked me what my plans were for the fabric. 'Heavy petting' I replied.
I think maybe getting an email from my husband mentioning heavy petting is perhaps something that I need to change.
If you think you'd like one too, Leah offers both the option of either having an iPad cover custom made, or you can purchase the pattern and make one yourself.
Thank you Leah, it's been a really great prize to win and I think you have done a wonderful job.
Oh, and she's also got a really informative blog chock full of useful information.
