finally got the camera and the inchies together in the same place at the same time!

Here we go:

first up: cats, flowers and hearts from gala_apples

fabric/quilted inchies from nilmerg. Received these ages ago, but only just got them and the camera together  Tongue Roll Eyes

and finally from Quasior, rainbows, flowers and stars

Love the way they are all so different!

Learning a lot about inchies from the swap - never done them before, and getting plenty of inspiration from everyone else.

Thank you all for sharing your artistry Cool

received from gamemom42 yesterday.

Love the glittery bits on the box (were on opposite sides, but one came off), will be reusing these for another project

And what was in the box? a lovely little collection of things for me!

a wonderful needle case:

Just what I needed! Now I can sit down and sort all my needles, rather than having them just shoved in my sewing box Smiley

A fabulous collection for my heart and star jars:

You can see the other side of the paper one in the group shot, the rest are all plain on the back. The black one didn't really photograph very well - the pink stitches are couching over a sparkely black cord - its a great idea, and one I might steal for my jar of stars swap Cool

The other two items are a spotty card, and some fabric crayons for me to use with Miles (and eventually Scott) to design his own t-shirts.

Thank you SO much gamemom42
