Le challenge has come round again, and here is my entry for the theme 'direction', and my new Iphone cover. I have been wanting a new one for a while - a more summery one - and usually I try to use le challenge to just get things done.
Let's face it, this is not the hardest embroidery pattern, but it feels good to finish something - no matter how simple it was. It is so satisfying, especially when you end up seeing your make every day in your bag.
I found the Iphone cover on Ebay (make sure you take the right one for your phone). The pattern I used was inspired by the Purl Soho one (but they don't use the same cover), and the thread is naturally dyed by the Outside Dyers - who are based in the UK.
I wanted to share on the side another change of direction - I am more and more inspired by the Paleo diet - although with mixed success in terms of recipe (especially for cakes). I hope I will be able to share more on this on the blog. I know some of you are also looking at healthier ways of eating, so I will be keen to share experience (especially with the kids).
