Let's Drive to Cuba!

Hey everyone, I hope that all of you are doing well.  I am well. I was able to do a bit of catch up and got some of the inchies that I missed done.  But let's dive into our Inchie World Tour.  This week over at Every Inchie Monday we are landing or driving to Cuba.

I never really knew much about Cuba since the US had an embargo on Cuba since the late 50's.  All I could tell you about Cuba is that they have cigars that everyone seems to want but could not have.  After the embargo was lifted a few years ago I found out that Cuba loves its 1950's cars

I just adore the colors of the cars.  Are those colors original? I dunno but they just make me happy, not to mention the shapes of those cars from that time are so beautiful.  So I decided to go with that as the theme of my inchie. 

  I was only able to fit in the front of the car but I am happy with it.  Purple isn't my favorite color but the color of those purple oldies is so pretty!  I hope I did it justice!  Check out all the other inchies at EIM.

Speaking of doing justice, I got a few of the missed inchies done.  I like the finished piece better than the screen grab of the pattern.

This is The Netherlands, pink tulips in front and a windmill in the back.

The USA, land of the Free and home of the Brave!

France, the French flag with a silhouette of the Eiffel Tower in the front. 

That is it for me this week, but before I go I would like to say that I am saddened by yet another school shooting.  This time in Florida.  I am sending all of them my prayers.  It is past time that we start thinking of our children and their safe future instead of political parties, stuffed pockets and alignments.   This isn't a political issue, it's a safe future issue. 

Have a blessed, safe and creative week my friends.


  1. Well done on the catch-up, your inchies are amazing. I love the look of those cars also, but their place is definitely Cuba, they would very out of place in a more modern environment and no-one could afford the petrol ;)
    I wish you well with your gun laws...Full marks to John Howard for being brave enough to take a stand here in Australia...we all need leaders who know the real meaning of their role in our societies. DX

    1. Thanks Dianne. They do have old car shows here in the states. But the parts are outrageously expensive. I wish our politicians were that strong

  2. Well done for doing some catching up, they are all delightful! I remember driving through Istanbul in the 70s and they had old 50s style cars by the bucket load then, mostly it was De Soto as taxis but still fun to see.

    Definitely some pressure needed vis à vis NRA power and all this "right to bear arms" nonsense.....I worry about my grandchildren growing up in the USA !


    1. Thanks, I completely understand. I think the right to bear arms is a good thing. But not for the semi auto weapons. That is unnecessary.

  3. I think it is so very clever to make beaded inchies, I love them all.

  4. I love that you chose to make an old fashioned car for your Cuban inchie. Aren't they just wonderful :-)
    The Dutch, American and French inchie are great too! Love the little Eiffel tower.

    1. Thanks Margriet, I so love old cars. They make me really happy.
