Having a DH with half a gram or less of romanticism in his make up, I just popped outside to gather and rescue some pretty yellow freesias battling against the wind of yet another dark rainy day and so treat myself to their beauty and delightful fragrance.
using a little unknown cross stitch design I found on the Internet and odds and ends from my stash,
I added some lace and trim, sequins and beads and lined the cover with some soft red velvet.
I still like my cover with the cats made years ago but it is now rather worn and difficult to wash
and having said that, this new one looks like it might be difficult to wash also.
Linking this post to Supermom no cape stitchery party.
Thank you for stopping by and looking. I hope you all have a wonderful day.
I love your Ipad cover Sheryl. What a great way to display your stitching. Happy Valentine's Day!ReplyDelete

Happy Valentine's Day! I love your iPad cover. (Hmmm... this might be a great gift idea for my sister.) Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Such wonderful work you were doing on your new I-Pad cover. Your use of lace and ribbons and beads is always adorable. And that stitched piece very Valentine-like :)ReplyDelete
Who cares if it is difficult to wash when you can always make a new one. I really like this cover. So pretty.ReplyDelete
Lovely stitching & great finishing too!ReplyDelete
Lovely ipad case, itsn't it wonderful when you find everything you need in your stash.ReplyDelete
It's lovely! It wouldn't cross my mind to wash something like a tablet case, if it got stained i'd just make a new one!ReplyDelete
Love the IPod with all the lace and cross stich. beautiful flowers to brighten up the day!!ReplyDelete
Lovely the I Pad cover!It's very pretty!ReplyDelete
Have a nice week.
Gorgeous iPad covers! Don't worry about washing them - it gives an excuse to make another new one! I love both covers, but extra specially the latest romantic one!ReplyDelete
Well done you clever lady!
Such a lovely cover - and fresias are one of my favourite flowers, with their heavenly perfume.ReplyDelete
Amazing work Sheryl, wonderful cover.ReplyDelete
Ha ha--I love your comment about your husband's lack of romantic gestures, Sheryl! Mine is the same way, too, although he does appear with flowers for Valentine's Day (no card this year, though!).ReplyDelete
Your Ipad covers--both old and new are great. You always find the most interesting designs to stitch--have never seen the romantic couple before. All the lace and embellishments make it even more special :)
Hope you enjoy the rest of your February!
Your case is gorgeous, very luxurious! If it doesn't wash then you'll have the perfect excuse to make a new one!ReplyDelete
Beautiful iPad cover!! My Bday comes a day before Valentine's Day so there is nothing I expect from my husband.ReplyDelete
I have crochet iPad cover but my iPad usually lay around in open anywhere in the house.
