I am not what you would call a phone person. I don't tend to call someone up just to chit chat. I call with purpose, say what has to be said and then say good-bye. When Keegan was born, Mike decided it was a good idea for me to have a cell phone for safety issues. I agreed. It would sit in my bag until the batteries died, sometimes I would charge it. To be honest, most of the time I didn't even know where my phone was. Please don't ask me for my number because I could only find it for you if my cell phone was turned on which was difficult to do when I didn't know where it was. Do you see the cycle of cell phone non-usage? It really irked Mike. Really irked.
About a month ago, he had the opportunity to get me a new phone in the hopes that I would use it more. He threw a little guilt into the mix as well. I took it as a challenge and I am doing much better. I remember it 75% of the time. Still don't know the number but I know how to find it. And I have actually used it a couple of times. Baby steps, people, baby steps.
Since I had a new phone, I decided I needed a nice little cozy for it. you know, something pretty. So I made one. I love hand sewing with wool felt. So much so, (sew much sew -- i know, dorky little pun but it amuses me) that I made another one for the shop. I see more such cozies in my future, just because I enjoy making them.
