WHAT DOES ONE DO

when 


Well The Scot does some planning which involved studying the inside of his eyelids



I am a little more industrious.  I gather all my 'bits' and retire to the patio



and hey look what I have achieved




One complete Christmas Inchie Decoration..  The most difficult part of these is the satin stitch around the edge and then when you come to the glue, apart from that they are great to make.

Now I just need to do  one more set and my swap is ready.

Oh, he looks like he's planning very productively. :)

With the inchies, use a tear-away behind them when you satin stitch. You'll be amazed at how much easier it makes your job.

O-K, so it is warm.... Well so it is in front of our fire!!!!!! LOL!

Your Scot looks relaxed and ready to be waited on - but take care not to disturbe those plans! Timing is of the essence lol.....

The inches are fab!
Please explain a tear away. I aim to curb any tearaways here!

Just fabulous weather there! While we are rejoicing in our 13 celcius out of the norm...went hiking ;). I love your inchie ornaments! You are giving me the urge to try them. ?Glue? where do you need glue?

Thought I'd stop and say hello, I'm an Aussie, and in this swap too. I saw the pics on flickr, and was interested to see what else you were doing, so checked to see if you had a blog.....oops, I sound like stalker...but not, truly :) Your inchies are great, you've done a lovely job.

Mine aren't looking as finished as yours, but ready to start embellishing. Are you going to do your second set the same?

I was wondering why you said you had finished ONE and there were TWO in the photo ... but then I noticed I could just make out a line down the middle and both sides of the background stuff looked the same and it was both sides of the same ornament - lol - very clever.
... and when I say that I am talking about both the fiddling with photos AND the inchies - the inchies look wonderful!
