Texting While Sewing

I've joined Amy's summer contest Texting While Sewing.  Swing by there and take a look, a really fun block contest and many wonderful prizes!

I had an idea about making a block for this contest...a literal translation of the title...I also wanted to use only text fabrics or fabrics with a sewing theme.

My idea was that this lady was texting while she was chain piecing and got distracted...well her chain piecing was flying out the window....
anyway, I thought it was kind of funny.

While I was gathering my fabrics I remembered I had this great Spanish tile fabric...small too.   Fit perfectly under the needle of the machine!

I also cut hair out of one of the fabrics, turned it upside down and arranged the pieces to fit my lady's head...didn't turn out too shabby! 

Well here is my finished thing, and if any one has an idea please let me know...I couldn't make the cell phone look like a cell looks more like a Kindle!!  I'm not able to figure how to make a keyboard in that small size that doesn't look like a blob!
