Stitchery Giveaway



A little while ago I saw these awesome cross stitch iphone covers on Pip's blog.  Perfect!  So I bought myself one.  And one for someone else as well!

I stitched a pretty heart on mine to start off with, nothing particularly original but I do love me a love heart.  I did have a nice pattern for a little bambi deer but it was a bit too wide for the cover.  I'm sure something else will turn up, or maybe I'll just add some pretty patterns around the heart.  That's the best thing, I can change it as often as I want!

My phone is sitting on my newest of past times, my sashiko panel.  I bought a few of these at the Quilt and Craft Fair and I'm almost half way through the first one.  I'm going to turn them into cushions to sit on our bed.  I can only do these fine stitchery projects late at night when my medication tremors have worn off enough for me to manoeuvre the needle properly.  Hopefully the high dose of steroids I'm on at the moment will start to be weaned off soon so I can do my stitching whenever because I'm really enjoying it!

If you'd like to win yourself a cross stitch phone cover, just leave me a comment telling me what you would put on yours.  It's made for an iphone 4 or 4s and the one I have to giveaway is white as well.

Entries close midnight (WST) on the 12th June.  I'll post to anywhere, so long as you're a follower!
Grab an extra entry if you mention my giveaway on your blog too...

Hey! That stitching is really cool. Do you know what, I need this navy/white interesting print for the binding of that damn quilt.

That's the cutest!! Of course I don't have an iphone (yet)... but love that you can make it so fashionable!

Sashimi I was thinking?? I knew it was a Japanese word. How clever that it is printed so you can stitch so nicely. Hope the dose is reduced soon.
I don't have an iPhone, I don't have any 'i' things so please don't enter me!!!

I got in to sashiko after buying a panel at the craft fair last year! They are so pretty. I made mine in to a cushion cover for my b.friend, she loves it, but I think it is on the small side for a cushion.

Oh that is so cute! I think if I had one of those it would take me forever to make up my mind what to stitch onto it....I have seen so many good ideas :-)
