    Sharon, thank you for doing this. I’m quite excited about it. Now that I’ve got my old job back and will be short of time I think a small project like this will help me to keep going!

    Hi Sharon – my one question – you don’t use a hoop? Or are you going to temporarily sash each block????

    My mother made this as “Windy City” in the 1970s, and still has it hanging. Must photograph.

    Chloe – yes I use a hoop I am going to put them on very fine cheesecloth/muslin – the christmas pudding variety. I did it this way because I want to see the shape of the diamond very clearly while I was piecing I did not want my eye thrown out – when I have photos I will blog it.

    Ooops *grin* I commented on the wrong post – glad you knew what I meant!

    Alas, flikr.com is blocked in the United Arab Emirates so I can’t see the 6×4’s. Bother! I shall have to wait until I’m in Europe over the Summer.

    I didn’t realize anyone could join 6×4 Lives. I’d like to try… not sure I am committed enough to do a postcard a month, but-hey, I need to mail some out, so maybe this is the boot-in-the-behind I need!

  7. sharonb Says:

    Edie – yep all are welcome and it is not too much each month

    hi sharon,

    i’m trying to make a fabric postcard and i’d like to ask you what to put on the back of the postcard, do you use thin cardboard?

    *sorry for my english mistakes

    As I am pretty well a virgin in the fiberarts cyberworld, this sounds like a good way for me to start joining in these little experimental essays. Has anyone ever tried to organize a swap of fiber and thread packets? Like maybe a certain weight or amount in maybe a certain colourway or shadings or textures or to a theme? I could imagine it might be exciting to send and receive bits and bobs of others’ stashes.

    Midge – there are often swaps between members of various yahoo groups and sometimes between bloggers. Its something that regularly happens and is a alot of fun.
