Every Inchie Monday - Time

For the last inchie of the year on Every Inchie Monday, the theme is Time. I have chosen Tea Time, as I seem to spend a lot of time drinking tea. The background is coloured with distress inks, stamped the clocks next, and then made the words and tea cup with shrink plastic.

Book of the sea 2014

My main project for 2014 is to make a fabric book of the sea. I have started off by using two pieces that I had made previously. One was a stitched seahorse that I made on an on-line course called Sumptuous surfaces. The second was a felted and  fabric postcard that I have stitched onto the backing fabric for the book, and carried the theme onto that. The third was from scratch and is mainly felted wool and silk. I have hand sewn lots of french knots, and sparkly thread on to the sea and wave edge. The pebbles at the bottom are balls of silk, sewn down with French knots. The sand is calico, cut and left raw edged.

Every Inchie Monday -- Food

Food is the theme on Every Inchie Monday, so I have made a Christmas cake. As I am trying to make my husband loose weight, I have made it out of felt, and embroidered the decorations. he won't get very fat on that.

Every Inchie Monday - Joy

On Every Inchie Monday the word is Joy. Not the easiest of things to show on an inch square. As we have a new baby in the family, my first thought was a baby. My second which is the one I went with is the rhyme of 1 for sorrow 2 for joy etc. So 2 for joy it is. I inked and shrank three images and stuck them on to  the base which is watercoloured.

Every Inchie Monday -- Found

.On Every Inchie Monday, the word this week is found. The first thing that came to mind was "I found a pin and picked it up" So I stuck a pin in a fabric inchie. I think the actual saying is 'See a pin and pick it up, and all the day you'll have good luck'.

Every Inchie Monday -- Jacket

I am away at the moment as my daughter has just had a 7lb 6 oz baby girl, Eleanor, a sister for Max and Harry. There were some complications, so I am away from home, until Claire gets out of hospital.
For my inchie this week, on Every Inchie Monday, I have made a small jacket from felt, with French knot buttons, and some couched thread to decorate.
Although I made this last weekend, I was unable to put it on my blog until we came home. The lighting in my daughters house leaves a lot to be desired, so it would have been neater if I'd been at home
