Steve and I went to arrange for one of the upstairs carpets to be fitted in January and while we were there the salesman was well into my phone cover and kept saying how much his wife would love one!!
So I got talked into making him one!!

The hardest part was not having a phone to try it on! Plus, I'd never written any instructions when I made my own,
Anyhow, I had to just go by measurements and hope for the best.  Fortunately, in the end, a friend of one of my friends had the same phone, so I was able to try it on his and it fits!!
So I'm taking it along on Thursday for him. He's seen a picture on his mobile and he likes it, so I hope he feels the same when he see's it in real life.

I've started another thread doily, but I don't have the right colours, so I shall have to improvise and just choose my colours.
I'm about half way on it, so I'll hopefully have an update on that for you soon!!

Hope all is well with you all.

I managed it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My 3rd doily and with 6 colour changes altogether. I can't believe I've done it!!!
I think the worst part was sewing in all the ends!!! :(
I just made myself sit down and do it, or I would have probably never got round to it.

I can't block it properly as I don't have anything to pin it to and also, I just have normal pins and I read you have to have anti rust ones. So I have just ironed it into shape ... the same with the pink one I made previously. Remember it?

I'm not sure this method is a good one, I ironed it upside down, so only on the back and I had a towel under and on top, so as to protect the stitches from going too flat.

I'm happy with them. I would never have thought I could do thread crochet. It's so enjoyable though.

Hope you are all keeping well.
Take care!!
