Two Octobers ago I stitched a case for my iPhone 4. Since then, Apple has released a few different iterations of the phone, but I’ve never upgraded. I’ve stuck with my iPhone 4, and my lovely dragon case. But, my poor phone has started to lose its mind a little (the GPS is often wrong among other issues), and my poor dragon has started to fray. So, just as you buy a new car when the ashtray is full*, it is time for me to get a new phone.
Sadly, my new phone is on back-order and I have no idea when it will arrive. Apparently the gold phones are very popular, which actually surprised me. But, thankfully, my new cross stitch case is here and I can get my phone’s home started.
I’ve been stressing out so much about what to stitch. I keep thinking that I have to make just the right choice since I will be living with this phone for a while. But, my husband took pity on me and remind me that these cases are actually pretty cheap compared to many other cases, so if I don’t like what I stitched, it will actually be okay to buy another one, or even get a regular case instead.
So, after look through my (far too big) collection of charts, magazines and books, I settled on waterlilies designed by Joan Elliot, and found in the magazine/book The Ultimate Joan Elliot Cross Stitch Collection.
Hopefully I’ll have the stitching all done by the time my phone arrives.
* An old family joke, but from when I was a kid, people smoked in cars, and my parents smoked like chimneys. Cleaning out the car’s ashtray always grossed out my mom. Do cars even have ashtrays anymore?
