It's finished! I've been working on this project for over a year! But I have inchies in this that go back to my first inchie swap in 2009.  I have listed all of my former swap partners from various inchie swaps, and also everyone that I had a personal swap with for green inchies. So a big thank you to (in no particular order):

And here is the finished project Smiley


There are 520 inchies altogether. I have no idea how many were made for me and how many I made myself. I have inchies from all over the world! The US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia, Greece, and New Zealand! How cool is that? Cheesy Again, thank you to everyone who contributed. I love this!

It's amazing!  I am in the process of making something similar for myself and I need about 125 more inchies to finish it off!  I will be watching the swap boards for another inchie swap so I can hopefully finish it soon.

Thanks everyone! Smiley I think it's awesome too. There are so many fun inchies to look at. And some that just make me happy to see. And some that are special because of where they came from. I might have to do this again Cheesy

I have a frame from a garage sale and intend to do something similar in Purple inchies! I agree that something like this in black and white would look amazing.

But wow, it looks so good. I'm proud to have been able to contribute to such a fantastic piece of art. (For some reason my little octopus seems to jump right out at me!)

WOW!!!  Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked I remember you said you were collecting green for a project but I didn't realize just how big that project was! This is simply amazing! I love the way all the different greens come together so nicely just like all the different styles of crafters who made them. This really is a time piece, You have inspired so many people to do this in their favourite colour!
I am very honoured to have been a part of this great piece hung up for all to see.
