Barbara,

I meant to congratulate you on your baptism. While we are not LDS participants, when we were in Las Vegas we lived among many Mormon's.  They always were kind and fun loving.  Lots of time spend taking all the kids to the park and hiking by Lake Mead.  Hope you had a great time last night.

Oh dear....  Frances, Ok I pretty much am a dependable and follow through kinda girl... but I tell you these small hexagons are proving to be difficult for me :(   I am not sure why really,  i am taking my time but the stitching really isn't up to my personal standards and :(    

so, I guess either I start again, or like you suggested make it with larger hexagons and not make four diamonds.  

unless you have some suggestions for working on this small scale?   I am very near sighted and with my glasses I find it hard to see and without them I have holding it so close to my face  hahaha  

Any way, everyones are looking nice and I KNOW how hard they are to work with!!! so way to go everyone!!

Sandy,

I am so sorry, I think the only one of us who finds these small hexies no problem is probably Kris (she likes working with small scale projects) Sandy make life easier on yourself and make a big diamond there is no problem with that and it will look just as stunning.  I dont have any suggestions for working on a small scale i just do the same as i do for big ones (the next block is a proper sized block with no itty bits. This sampler is a learning curve for me as well as everyone else finding out whats easy whats not.

lots of love

Francesxx

Barbara,

I went ahead and ordered one but, like you, won't be starting any time soon...maybe. LOL Linda really is wonderful. She is very prompt with returning emails and she has a fabulous sense of humour.

Did you get just the book or did you get the Inklingo shapes too? Frances' next block is going to use those elongated hexagons.
