Every Inchie Monday 2016: Galaxy

Hello Fellow Inchers,

Happy New Year Everyone.  I wish all of you health and happiness for the coming new year.  May all your dreams come true.

This week's word at Every Inchie Monday is Galaxy.  What a beautiful word.  It evokes such awe in me when I think of how tiny we are in the vast universe -- even if this is how Douglas Adams describes our turf:

"Far out in the uncharted backwaters in the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the galaxy, lies a small unregarded yellow star" with it's "insignificant blue green planet".

I love the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and am looking forward to all its wonderful words.  Thank you Trillian.  If you haven't heard it, I highly recommend the BBC TV adaptation [edit - I originally pointed to the radio version which wasn't what I was remembering.]  Here's a link to the first part.

It was too difficult to chose between two images for my first inchie - one the beautiful milky way:

And the second, which I must admit I thought was too clever not to use (ego, ego).

My Galaxy S4 phone.  You can see from the date that I started inchie-ing when the list first came out.

(And I was going to make my pictures not blurry this year - but that's because I blew up the actual inchie size so you could see it better.)  

I'm still quilling inchies.  Hopefully the two previous images, make up for this rather lame attempt.  It's too big a word to do justice to in a quilled inchie.  At least for me.

That's it for this week.  Looking forward to the journey through 2016 and one of my favourite books.


  1. Very clever! Happy new year to you.


  2. Too funny that you used your phone for the inchie! The others are great too though :)

  3. Great to hear you love the Hitchhiker. The mobile one was what my friend told me I should do for my inchie. But I think the other one is my favorite.

  4. I love all 3 of them. And I am in love with my Galaxy S5, how did I not think of using that?!? LOL I love seeing your quilled inchies. I dont know how you do it and am always amazed by them

  5. Thanks, Kia for well wishes! Love your takes on the galaxy--isn't it amazing that you can hold one in your hand?! Have a brilliant new year! Cheryl

  6. Both are terrific

    Love Chrissie xx
