Every Inchie Monday - Door

Well a hard week to get through for me as I got food poisoning on Sunday night which rather floored me for doing anything for three days as achey and shattered.  However am recovering now and have a house full for Easter so had better be OK!! Just managed to get this done before everyone arrived this evening!  So this week's challenge word for Every Inchie Monday is Door and I'm sure they mean a door to the spaceship, or cupboards or steel doors etc - but I chose to do a fairy door, supposedly in a tree hence the ivy!  I thought it would be easy but actually the sewing was quite tricky as I guess I'm still not feeling totally me!  Anyhow this is how it turned out, thanks for passing by and please catch everybody else's inchies at EIM by clicking the link.

Every Inchie Monday - Island

Today's Monday - today's Monday - Monday is Inchie Day is everybody happy?  You bet your life we are!!  And that's only because the sun was out for the whole weekend!!  And still is!!  Hooray!  And so I incorporated a lovely setting sun in my inchie today for Every Inchie Monday.  What better than a remote island with a setting sun, a red sky and palm trees - I'm sure I'm not the only one to do this scene!  But I really enjoyed doing this one and tried to make the island crescent shaped in keeping with the one in the book!  Have a lovely week - hope being that the sun stays out for the remainder of it!

Every Inchie Monday - Spaceship

Firstly thank you for all your lovely concern and well wishes for me to get better.  I am on the mend but just can't seem to get rid of this horrid head cold, but as all things do it will go in the end.  So on to Monday's Every Inchie Challenge and this week it is Spaceship.  I have just finished reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and thoroughly enjoyed it and laughed every time I came to one of the Challenge words yet to come!  It does give things a different perspective however there is no way I could portray the Heart of Gold on a one inch square so I have gone for my own stylised spaceship come rocket really.  I thought he was rather cute and I really enjoyed doing this one,  it could be just a little space hopper craft for Arthur and his new friends to use in the future.  Hope you all had a good weekend and have a good week, please click the link to see other one inch "spaceships".

Every Inchie Monday - Towel

I had two ideas for this Monday's Every Inchie Monday Challenge and couldn't decide, so guess what? - yes I did both - again!!  The first is just a towel on a pole - was wondering how I could achieve that and was imagining beads supporting a wire but then I found this plastic "ribbon" for want of a word with bobbles on so just used the two bobbles either side of the this plastic wire to support a tiny folded towel!

But then I thought it would be fun to portray a towel on a beach - maybe Arthur was sunbathing!  So here's the second "towel"

Hope you all had a good weekend - mine was manic with 5 grandchildren here and a dog to keep occupied and then I went down with a virus for two days so here's hoping life can go back to normal! - whatever that is!!!  Thank you for viewing my page and please make sure you click the link to see the other talented inchies and artwork that's out there.
