where I ramble on about what's happening in my little world
and hopefully you have some enjoyment reading about it!



and now for something completely different...

Not my usual sort of miniatures, but...
A while ago, I discovered the world of "inchies" on another blog and did much covetting, ooo-ing and arrr-ing, googled it... and oh my, it opened a world of mixed media delights upon my eyes!! and then I wanted to have a go too :o) Before miniatures, my first love was always with textiles and stitching so I enjoyed focusing on playing with fabric just for the fun of it again, rummaged in my stash & this is my first attempt.

They say size matters... well an inch wasn't quite big enough for me (no smutty jokes please) and I settled for an inch & a quarter.

some closer views,




Now they're finished I wish I'd added more stitching... maybe next time? I need to find a nice box frame to mount them in now ... nothing's ever completely finished around here LOL

back to my 'to-do list!.....

oh they are beautiful, I've done paper inches and found them really fiddly to work on but your fabric ones are stunning, so much work has gone in to them.

These are sooo beautiful Wendie. I love the idea of displaying them in one of those box frames. They would look stunning.
I am off to google now too as they would be a great way to use up all the little bits we always have left over.
Thank you so much for showing them.
