My new idea!!

This is a 4 inch frame. Oh so cute from Michael's.

Hi everyone. Here is a peek of my new idea. If you have seen the book "Inchies" you know what I will be talking about. They are little designs that are an inch in size, mostly using mixed media and textiles. Looks like fun and quick to make. Well my idea is to make stitched pieces called "Stitch An Inch". I have designed "Stitch an Inch Summer Pack #1" and "Stitch An Inch Summer Pack #2" is in the process. Also in the works will be "Stitch an Inch Fall Pack", "Stitch an Inch Halloween", and "Stitch An Inch Christmas".
The summer ones will come with 6 designs and a bonus chart ( a mermaid on the first pack and a lobster in the second pack). I have a couple of ideas to finish these to share later with different frames and as ornaments. These are done over (1) on 28ct linen using a continental stitch with 2 strands of floss.
But if you do them on 14ct they would be 2 inch squares and if you stitch them all together the six all horizontal and the other 6 from pack #2 it would be 2 X 24 on 14 ct cloth and would look great over a door. They do fit together as one long scene.
I hope you enjoy my peek and I will share more as soon as I finish more.
Have a good night
