Basically you embroider a square for each year of your life (your age). You might have to use rectangles that take up 2 or 3 squares to make it come out right...
See more examples here ---> http://www.pinterest.com/marybethburrell/39-squares-stitch-a-long/
You are welcome to follow the above premise, or to stitch single loose inchies - The choice is yours!! Make as many or as few as you like!
Only requirement: The stitched square must not be bigger than 2"x 2".
Starting June 1st, I'll be listing some themes, prompts, and challenges right here, to serve as inspiration for your inchies. You are however more than welcome to do your own thing too.
