CATCHING UP WITH INCHIES AT LAST

For the last eight weeks I really got behind with my submissions to EVERY INCHIE MONDAY.  I hate being a quitter so today I have spent some time catching up.  Every Inchie Monday gives a prompt or topic which the participator has to present every Monday  using any media, but it must be one  inch square. 


      
                                    
                        TOURIST                                                       CEILING                 

         



                                                      
 HOUSE                        EYE





SUNSET

These are all one inch square and are done with Prismacolor pencils.

For a while I was doing my submissions as a Twinchie, (two inches square) because I had a cataract that needed to be removed.  At last they decided I could have the surgery -- thank goodness -- as it was on my right eye and that is my good eye.  A few weeks went by after the surgery while we adjusted the prescription for my left eye with which I was seeing double. Finally everything was straightened out, but then a major event in our family, about which I will blog next week, took over our lives for a while.

I have also just realized that this post also qualifies for Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday -- the letter "I".  Since I just got back home I was thinking I missed it.  So please visit ABC Wednesday  to see more INSPIRED entries by clicking HERE.

Boy you did catch up. I like them all, but that little bird house is my favorite.

Can't wait to see your new family pictures.

Catching up in spades. Your eyesight must be 100% now, judging from the detail. I assume the wedding is over now, hope it went well.

Wow! Didn't take you long to get caught up - these are terrific, chrisJ! I agree, your eyesight must be great, considering all the detail!

What a great selection - and interesting interpretations. I love the eye of the storm.

Wonderful news about your eyesight. The proof is in your inchies. Great job and I eagerly look forward to hearing about your major event.

Hi Chris! You are so creative. What a lovely "inchies". Thanks for your visit and comment. I do not know much about Jewish traditions, but Dina told me a lot. It's very interesting. Have a great Sunday.

Lovely inchies - you are talented.

I'm glad your surgery went well - it must be such a pleasure to see properly again.

Love the 'inchies' (what a great concept!), particularly the sunset one. Oh, and the bird house. What you capture with your pencils, I try to capture with photography - both are so magical in representing the beauty around us.

Ah, a twofer, and well done at that. Wasn't familiar with inchies before.
