Hey everybody, thanks for stopping by the nest this week. I have been waiting for this weeks stop on the Every Inchie Monday world tour. Croatia may not sound like the best place in the world to stop on a world tour but when I was researching Croatia I found out the coolest thing. Croatians love to break world records! It is like a country-wide thing for them. 25 records have been broken by them and was what I based my inchie on.
Think of this, you decide that an arena in Pula, Croatia needs to dress it up a bit and decide that the one way to do that is to make a tie to fit around the arena. A tie that measures 2,650 ft! Wow! I would not want to have to knot that tie! LOL Check it out. Those little dots in the square are people!!
This awesome picture is the inspiration for my inchie. I have to say this inchie gave me fits, 2 count them 2 beads broke and I had to replace them after I had already beaded past them. But I am happy I got it done. I really love this one, it is a simple close up of a knotted tie and white shirt but it makes me smile since it represents the picture above. What do you think?
Also this week I made a pair of earrings for my adopted daughter. These are so pretty and they make me wish I still had my ears pierced. I love the color combo as well. She picked out the design and colors.
That is it for me this week. I am still trying to work on my special project that I posted a few months ago. But I have been plagued with shoulder pain and have not having had the time to get to it as much as I wanted. Thanks for stopping by this week and don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great artwork about Croatia. Have a blessed and creative week my friends.
