a little love...

Back in January, (it seems so long ago now) I got a new mobile. My last one was a flip open one so the screen was protected but not this one. I meant to make/buy etc a case for it but in reality all I did was keep making sure there was something soft wrapped around it, (like a scarf *lol*) when it was in my bag, so I thought it was about time I showed it a little love...

I found myself some material that I'd never got around to using yet...

and made myself a little bird stencil from freezer paper. I've now realised how easy this is and will no doubt be making use of the freezer paper that has been sitting on my desk for the last few months! Added a little free hand embroidery and voila...

I'm sure my phone loves me more for it...

It didn't even take that long - I'm not sure why I didn't get around to doing this earlier...

Talking of love, I hope you all had a lovely Valentines Day. We don't make that big a deal of it as our wedding anniversary is on the 16th February but I did get some roses which is kind of sweet, especially as the first roses I ever got from Mr C.Sunday ended up going in the bin, as we met someplace - he turned up with roses, I didn't have a bag, he did and to cut a long story short I forgot to take them home and by the time he discovered them the next day they were a little worse for wear! Still I think that's forgotten now!

But the best part of valentines day was going for a dog walk and seeing this guy...Is it just me or is love everywhere?...

love is all around...

It turned out so perfectly! I still haven't tried freezer paper stenciling and it's been on my list for a long time.
