When I first saw this Every Inchie Monday word as the challenge I thought of earth as in soil, then I put earth into Google and loads of images came up of Earth as a globe and I thought "Oh yes! That's probably what is meant because of it being from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" (although there was a lot of earth moved in trying to knock down Arthur's House!) So the problem was how to do Earth as a globe floating in space on an inch in embroidery and try as I would I couldn't make it work so I chickened out and ended up doing earth as in a cross section showing the soil with roots and the grass and sky!
But then I was fiddling about in my craft room and I came across some dark spotty material and some Moda fabric and part of it really looked like the Earth - so I bit the bullet and did another one!! Strange one to do two on but there you go!! Please click the link to see everyone else's fine work and isn't it nice to see the sun again today? Hooray because I really am fed up with being wet!!
