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
