Love is in the Air!

and not because Valentine's Day is coming......

I've wanted a tablet for about a year now, and thought I'd wait to see the new Surface by Microsoft 'cause it looks so light and the "click on" keyboard really appealed to me.  So, I started doing research on tablets a couple months ago and passed on the Surface RT, went to the Surface Pro, but found out it was way TOO COSTLY for my budget.

So, I continued with my research, including the Ipad,  and chose the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 with 32GB and got it last Friday! 

I'm in love with my new toys and notice the word toys is  You can't just have one piece of Lego...can you?

(sorry...the picture's a bit blurry, and didn't take the time to take it again.)
Got the leather case bluetooth keyboard too.

Also got a Portable 1TB external hard drive for my pc, another SD card, but didn't take pictures of those and haven't played with either of them....yet!

Here's the case/keyboard folded up......not bad!

So, yesterday I decided I wanted the 2nd cover  without the keyboard to put it in my purse on the go, so went and bought this one.  Costly at $60, but thought it would be fine.  NOT!  I worked for about 1/2 hour to fit my tablet in it....and just not going to work, so have to take it back.......drats!  Eventually, I'll find exactly what I want.   (It did say it would fit my Sansung Note 10.1 on the box.)

I hope I can stop playing with my new toys long enough to do some sewing/quilting.   Maybe I'll have to limit myself to playing during my break times and not take my tablet into the sewing room. 

What do you think?

Thanks for visiting.


  1. I think you should make a pretty cover for your Galaxy for your purse. Double the batting, and have fun quilting it, use prietty colors that will make you smile whenever you see it. It's much more fun that a plain black one! Enjoy!

  2. What fun! I'm going to be paying close attention to how you like this one as you continue to use it. I'll be wanting one next year. Hoiepfully funds will be more plentiful then. : )

  3. The Galaxy tablet is on my wish list. Enjoy yours. And, I agree teachpany, you should make yours a pretty cover.


  4. I think you should make a cover for your purse too! The tablet will be a perfect accessory for the sewing room!

  5. I bought an ASUS TF300 tablet and docking keyboard, and love them! I made a case for them to carry around, probably should have doubled the batting (I just used one layer of Warm & Natural that was left over from a quilt project). Depending on how fancy you need your case to be, a simple envelope would work well just to carry it around. I made mine big enough for the tablet to be connected to the keyboard, but it will hold just the tablet without a problem. I can email you a photo if you're curious.


  6. I think you should just make your own non-keyboard case for it. Get some Peltex or Timtex OR (what I use) Floriani Stitch 'N' Shape to make it firm and sturdy. then you can make the outside some type of patchwork design.

    Congrats on the new toys - enjoy playing.

  7. What a fun toy!!!! Don't you just hate it, you get something fun that keeps you from doing what you need to be doing?
