Check this out - a cross stitch cover for your iphone!!! I found it last night when I was checking out all the blogs that I am woefully behind on. You can get them on ebay believe it or not!
I would never have imagined you could get one.
I used to do lots of cross stitch. I had so many patterns and magazines and loads of threads. These days I would need my glasses to be able to see what I was doing and I doubt my hands would appreciate it seeing as holding a needle is painful. It did keep me sane for a while though. When I was pregnant there was a lot of time hanging out at home. I didn't have family around where I was and my hubby traveled a lot so I had lots of time to fill in. I would cross stitch for hours each day.
These are some of the ones that hang in our home. Sorry about the picture quality. I couldn't get a good shot with the glass on them.
This is a special one - the words say " I hear your keys in the door ....you are home again...and safe...all the burdens of the day are lightened.....all the night noises are music to my ears". No surprises for guessing that this was for my lovely hubby!
These next ones were just for me. By the time I did these two cute little girls I knew I was having two boys and was fairly sure I would never have girls. This was my girly gift to myself! See, one even has red hair!
And the other one says "Cross stitchers are a different breed."
I loved all the little trinkets you had to add to this one.
And finally another one for my hubby. But first note the Engineer's sign - SOOOOO TRUE!
This one was so fiddly and detailed - spent HOURS on it when I was on maternity leave. I kept it as a surprise for my hubby and I think I gave it to him for an anniversary present. So long ago now I would have to check the back to see.
No cross stitching here these days. Too much sewing to do but also the hands just can't hold the needles anymore!
Till next time................happy stitching!
