Every Inchie Monday - Letter

Ha - it's the last Monday of the year!!  Boxing Day in fact but it will be our Christmas Eve as all the family are coming to celebrate Christmas Day tomorrow!!  We had a very quiet Christmas Day yesterday I really missed the joyful excited voices of the children early morning - although I dare say there will be plenty of that tomorrow morning!!  Anyway here on Every Inchie Monday it is the last challenge of 2016 and the word is letter and what better way to portray it than with a post box complete with snow with a Christmas card half way in!  I was so surprised to see nearly everyone else had done a letter of the alphabet!!!  I never thought of that - always read it as a written letter to post!! 

Anyway I hope you all had a really good Christmas and next week we will all be starting a New Year so have a Happy New Year everyone next Sunday.  Thanks for stopping by and please check out all the other Inchie Makers work by clicking the link here

Every Inchie Monday - Ugly

I can't believe it's the Monday before Christmas!!  I'd better get my skates on - still don't seem to be anywhere near ready!  But today's Every Inchie Monday word is Ugly and  as I was on a run with story books I came up with Hans Christian Anderson's little Ugly Duckling and so here he is, an ugly little duckling on the water reflecting how he will turn into a beautiful white swan.

Thanks for dropping by and may I wish you all a very merry Christmas - have a wonderful weekend.  I'm sure we will and many thanks for any comments you leave - don't forget to check out the other inchie makers work.

Every Inchie Monday - 42

So here we are Week 49 on Every Inchie Monday and this week's challenge word is 42. As every word is from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy I can tell you that 42 is the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything from the supercomputer, Deep Thought, specially built for this purpose. It takes Deep Thought 7½ million years to compute and check the answer, which turns out to be 42.  However I didn't want to do the obvious and embroider the number so I sat (in Deep Thought my own computer!) and pondered what makes 42 and came up with 6 x 7 so I started doodling and made a star shape with 6 spokes and ended up putting 7 little lines on each spoke and ended up with this!

A snowflake!!  So I thought I'd do it in beads and the only reason I am showing you my doodle is that the "snowflake" is a bit more precise than my beadwork!!!  Here she is:

Quite hard to fit all those beads in but there are in fact 42 of them !!  Thanks for dropping by and your lovely comments - I always enjoy reading them.  Have a good week - shopping?!  Good luck!
