I did get my inchies from last week and this week! YAY! Last week over at Every Inchie Monday the world tour stopped at the United Kingdom. I was pretty excited for this inchie, then when I got out the pattern I was stumped! You may remember that I design my inchies at the beginning of the year then I get the yearly list. Well, for the UK inchie I designed something that, months later I could not figure out! I had no clue what it was supposed to be! It looked kinda like a soccer ball in the front but I could not figure out what was in the background. In the end I just could not figure out what I was trying to do so I had to start over. That said, I am not really happy with the new pattern. But it is what it is and here it is!
Can you tell what this is? Yea, I know it looks pretty gaudy! It is supposed to be an ornate tea pot. Yea, a TEAPOT! Oh well! LOL Now on to this week, quickly!
This week over at EIM the theme is Andorra. I have heard of the place but not really heard of the place, if you know what I mean?!? That said, I looked up many things about Andorra I found one really cool thing about Andorra, the last time they went into war was over 1,000 years ago! How interesting! Wouldn't that be nice to not know what war looks and feels like, am I right? Check out my inchie.
I wanted to mention that I finished my first virtual race from Yes.fit. I have to thank Cathy for introducing it to me; I am hooked. I have already started my 2nd race!! Here is my Medal from my first race.
I love the little card that came with it! It makes me laugh so much. The ribbon and medal are both so pretty. I was also really surprised at how heavy it is. I can't wait to get further into my next race.
That is it for me this week. I hope that everyone (in the US) had a great Mother's day. Mine was great. Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the world tour, and have a blessed and creative week my friends.
Two brilliant inchies, love them. I wish I designed mine at the beginning of the year instead of the night before, or for this week, several days later. Very busy in the garden getting ready for open garden weekends.ReplyDelete
Thanks Wendy, I am glad that i design them early but the beading seems to take more time at times lolDelete
Your uk last minute made me smile as so many people I know no longer seem to use teapots! Andorra is certainly an interesting place and it's fun to discover new places through the challenge.ReplyDelete
Thanks Sally, glad tht you liked my teapotDelete
Love both your inchies, I have to say, I still use teapots, (I have a secret ittle collection, from my Nan's posh silver number to my little single serve pottery one, I also love to knit tea cosies, another dying craft!) Well done also on the race completion, great encouragement to receive an acknowledgement of your achievement, Cathy obviously loves the programme. DxReplyDelete
Thanks Dianne, my daughter also loves her teapot and teacups. If I ever figure out what it was I will let you know.Delete
PS...if you work out what your first design was all about, do let us know, I am intrigued! xReplyDelete
Did you bead your first design? I'm so curious :-) I needed your hint to see the teapor, but now it's so obvious. Love it :-) And your Andorra inchie is great too, I wish the whole world could say they didn't have war for more than 1000 years!ReplyDelete
Thanks Margriet, I did not bead the first one. I do have a picture of the original pattern though and I will post it next week!Delete
