So did he get the message?

Well yes, yes he did!

Imagine my delight on Christmas morning when I unwrapped a lovely Nokia Lumia phone!

I just had to make a cover for it so after all our Christmas and New Year festivities were over I got busy with my sewing machine again:



I kept it the same colours as my quilt although I must admit I much prefer the Nokia blue tiles on my actual phone. This was far harder to sew than the quilt as the tiles are just under 1" square therefore I just chose a selection of the easiest tiles to replicate from the Windows catalogue rather than struggling with Internet Explorer, Star Wars Angry Birds and the Sudoku tiles that are on my actual phone.

I decided to include my name on it too (just in case I forget who I am! tee hee).

 
and as you can see peeking out from the flap on the right there it is fully lined in bright orange too!

Have had a great few hours styling the phone to suit me including the easy transfer of all my email and phone contacts, which is fab as you can link all your conversations with people in their contact entry, so see facebook, twitter, texts all in one place, and, joy of joys, imagine the excitement when I discovered I could download a free Phineas and Ferb soundtrack app to use as individual ringtones for everyone. So Ferb, I know what we are going to do today.....

I think putting your name on it was to say "Hands off this is Mine". Glad you got what you asked Santa for. Hugs Mrs A.
