Thanks, Ellen, but I'm not pursuing that project right now.  I don't want to put a focus fabric inside my current hollow cubes. :-)

I believe that is Los Angeles county only. 

Later in the day, I heard that it was LA County.  Thanks for the correction.  Can't imagine 3 more months of this.  I hope people have learned what they need to do to reduce the risks of getting Covid 19 and protect themselves.

the part about the audience must hear the dialogue.

My husband wears hearing aids that blue tooth to the TV.  He hears the dialogue better than I do.  A friend has some Sony head phones that are connected to her TV that seems to solve the problem for her.  I need to check on that and see if the TV has enough ports for another device.

Your hollow cubes are so darn cute that I just had to try a few.  Working with getting a decent light, med, and dark.  It seems to look different when you get the block together.

They. Look. Awesome!  

They *are* like eating potato chips, aren't they?

Thanks!  Yes, they are like eating chips.  They aren't quite as hard as they look and it is fun trying to choose the colors.  I sure have made a disaster of my bin of brights.  Oh well, needed to organize it anyway.

and don't forget ... you don't need to keep it monochromatic!  I chose that because 1) I had seen an example and that's what tempted me but also 2) it made picking fabrics easier in a way.

However, if you choose different colored fabrics, it can make picking the contrast easier because you don't always have the best dark/med/light in one color family, whereas, you CAN get that contrast with different colors.

Just tryin' to help out, you understand. :-)
