I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

We were discussing a common thread swap on this thread and out from that came the idea of doing a stitchy inchie (or maybe 2 inches) swap. I have seen some darling inchie embroidery stitch alongs before. Anyone interested?

I've been wanting to do something in a smaller size - I keep trying to do these big exhausting stitcheries.  Tongue

Ludi!  Cheesy
It would be a challenge for me to do something smaller too. I've never done really small projects before.

I've never done anything that small for hand stitching - have done fabric inchies - sounds fun.  Grin

sorry if I'd being reeeally stupid... but... once you've sewn you're inchie of fabric, how would you 'frame' it? just back it onto cardboard? or back onto layers of felt and interfacing to make it stiff, but still pliable?
or would you sew directly onto an inchie worth of cardboard?
or something else entirely?
or crafters choice?

I'm trying to get an image of what you're thinking here, is all Smiley

I would just want to collect a few and then pin them to a board and display, separated slightly, like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/213287732325147476/

Oh, sorry  - i wasn't very clear - i meant more how each individual inchie was finished, not so much how to display them once collected.
So, if your talking about pinning them, they must be soft backed, like with thick felt something? Right?
