A WIP for my mum and it's Circus time...!

I hope everyones week is going well so far!
This week I started a new knitting project, something for my mum actually- a Kindle fire case :-) She got a kindle Fire HD from my dad for Christmas and a hard case to protect it, but I thought I would knit her a pretty case to slip it into when she takes it on holiday etc...
I came up with a style and colour in my head, then looked through my knitting stitch calendar from a couple of years ago to find the kind of stitch I wanted. Here is it so far: 
It will have the cables running all the way up and then ribbing at the top, and to add the final finishing touch I am going to sew this little hedgehog cross stitch that I am working on too:

It is another mouseloft kit- just in case anyone thinks he is cute and wants to start stitching him for themselves :P
This week for me is installation week at college- all the people on technical courses (like me :) have to work in groups to make a little exhibition piece thing and this years theme for the installations is fairgrounds/carnivals etc... so me and my group decided to make ours about a circus. Our piece gets a bit dark in places and we have lights and sound etc.. to convey our story but today we got our torn poster wall we planned up- it looks pretty good, I helped out with editing some of the old style posters we found and then distressing them with teabags and stuff- it was fun! Here it is:

Hehehe- still more to do for our piece, including putting out and focusing the lights onto the jars with little circus scenes in that me and a girl from theatre design put together. We will get there ready for showing them on Thursday and Friday though!
See you all again soon and I hope you are all well,
