I just can't make them. I have big hands, fingers bent with arthritis - and inches are my worst nightmare.
I really like to support forum swaps - and try my best but............................
There is a swap on a forum I belong too, it was an open 'theme' and I sent in my nine Oriental inches - but didn't feel they were my best. I tried my best - but they lacked something.
So I have spent all of this morning trying again! (Click to enlarge if you dare!)
They do look better in real life - but as you can see, I can't even arrange them properly to photograph - they are just too small.
I have 'lost the plot' - Idon't even remember which way up some of them are meant to be! They have a Cosmic shimmer sheen here and there which the photo doesn't show.
In the photo some don't even look square - but they are - they are just not lying flat!
Please, pretty please, don't take offence if I don't join in any more inches swaps. I feel about inches, the way most people feel about spiders, or daddy long legs, or snakes. My grandson loves me to read him a book called 'Arghhh Spiders' - he and his mum are scared of them - I'm not though - but I think I might write a book called 'Arghhh Inches' - and he can have the same delight reading it to me in a scary voice - as I do reading to him!
