And here they are! Fantastic inchies from ENGRbyDAY! Sadly, the button didn't survive the trip, despite the cotton padding. I'm hoping I can glue it, but it is in many bits...

I love the planet, and the simplicity of the 'Strength' one. And, it's funny that you outlined the one with the ball the way you did. I made one for myself that has an almost identical border (mine is black) Wink

Thanks a bunch! I love them all!

I couldn't get a good photo of the greek symbol (not sure which one it is).  And now my camera battery is dead. 

It's supposed to be the letter M for your initial Wink I had a bit of an issue with the teeny glass beads on yours so it doesn't photograph very well, unfortunately!

ETA: But here's what I have...

The 'You are Here' one is so clever! I need to make one for myself Cheesy

Thanks! I was pretty tickled by it myself Wink I had an old Rand-McNally road atlas that I sacrificed...

And, I just realized, I have a set of inchies to photograph and post!

I got a set of inchies from prettyinkpink yesterday, and I "heart" them Wink

The one on the left has a great deal of texture with a "chunky" layer of crystal pieces. The next one is a fantastic little poetry book. Then, there are some shell rectangles, followed by a heart with embroidered accents, and then a collage with a photo that has some small stamped flowers, a felt flower and some text (I think it translates to "smiles" or "smiling."). I love them all!

Here are the inchies I received from JennyBear! She made me some science themed ones- butterflies! Each inchie is covered with punched butterflies in various shades of a color. I love how she arranged them in the envelope, and will probably display them this way (they stuck together a bit, so it's another reason). I may switch the green and blue so they are in rainbow order Wink

Thanks, JennyBear!

455  Re: 2009 12" Squares- May in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: April 30, 2009 06:18:38 PM
So, since I have to go to bed soon, and get up way too early tomorrow (my car was supposed to be inspected by today, but I had a tail light out, so I have to get up early tomorrow to be at the inspection station by 7 am), I'm posting the May square now Wink

It's the Victorian Dream Square. It wasn't hard, but you may want to write out rounds 5 and 6, because there are a bunch of repeats (sorry- I don't have time to do it  Undecided ). I also made a couple of notes on the first post in this thread, which may (or may not) be helpful.

My square is a bit small, but I forgot to do the last round in black, so I'm not worried Wink

Can't wait to see what you all use for color combos on this one! And, fantasticmio, I expect a completed square by the time I get home from work tomorrow Wink

456  Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap (FOCR) R5 SIGNUPS CLOSED SENDOUTS 5/6 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by craftADDchick on: April 26, 2009 07:29:17 AM
Breakfast is done, and buttons are sewn, so here's my offering!

Three re-usable lunch bags. The inside is lined with an orange swirly cotton fabric, covered with iron-on vinyl (they are not insulated, however). They close with fabric covered buttons. The 2 floral print ones are made with duck cloth, I think (might be lighter weight than that, though... I bought the fabric from JoAnns a while ago and they were in the clearance section), and the third one is canvas that I stenciled on.

Wow! There are so many great inchies on here! I just love looking at them all! I have 2 things to work on tonight, but sadly, neither is inchies. But, that's okay because I'm gathering more stuff to make them with- materials, ideas, techniques- so hopefully I'll be able to crank them out when I finally sit down to it Wink

Here are the beauties that I received from edelC! I can't pick favorite, but the chicken one that says "MOM" cracks me up Wink I love the background colors on all of them.

My inchies look so great all together! I was perusing the frames the other day, and I can't wait to frame them!

Thanks, edelC!

Here are the motifs I made for myself as I was making them for MareMare and fantasticmio. They're pretty much the same as those that I made for MareMare (and some of the ones that I made for fantasticmio).

I think these last 2 are my favorites! I'll be laying them all out this week to see how I should arrange them for my blanket. Then, I'll start crocheting them together!

And, I'll be leaving feedback in just a jiffy. If it doesn't appear in your profile in about an hour, let me know...

Thanks everyone for such a great swap! I can hardly wait for the next round Wink

I received 3 fantastic sets- they have inspired me to try to be a bit more creative with my inchies Wink

From loves2experiment:

I love the hole punch one, and was thinking of something like this the other day... I just bought a new fancy punch and may have to try it (imitation is a sincere form of flattery, after all Wink ).

From Smmarrt:

I think the bird one is my favorite!

From TerraBella01:

I love the frog, and the one that looks like a coral branch. Science-y! Wink

Thanks so much! I can't wait to get started on mine!

Excellent skull motifs! And, the black one with the variegated spiral is cool looking! And, myklia, I love the giant flower... you may be hearing from me soon, asking how to make it Wink

And, since I'm making no progress on cleaning my house for tomorrow, I may as well take a bit more procrastination time and post the pics of my gorgeous motifs from MareMare. They are so soft, and she used colors that I absolutely love!

I really, really like the yarn used on the puffy square (the photo doesn't show how subtle the highlights are), and I love the dimensional center on the other one.

The pink flower also has a dimensional center (which didn't photograph well) and I love the color combo. And the green and grey one (a color combo that is unexpectedly awesome) is such a neat looking pattern- like a granny square, but cooler Wink

The green yarn on the four-petaled one has some colored speckles in it and it's another yarn favorite. And, I really love the spiral motif on the other one.

I have vacation in a week, and I'm going to spend some time arranging my motifs (from fantasticmio and MareMare, plus the ones I made for myself) and then I'll figure out how to crochet them together. If it doesn't end up quite as big as I'd like, I can always add more motifs around the edges as I see fit. I'm pretty excited because it could end up being my first ever completed blanket/throw!

Thanks so much to my partners for making me such superb motifs! Now, I'm feeling a bit of performance anxiety for the ones that I sent...
