Thanks so much for the link. I've added one for your site on my links page. And I've included a picture of one of my shades, below. It's a small, stretch-style frame, and I wanted your readers to see an example of how you can cover any free-standing frame with the all-hand-sewn construction method used to cover the fancier frames (which don't have a lining, but rather, the wire is covered to co-ordinate with the other materials). It's feedsack, backed with seersucker, bound with bias tape, and trimmed with two different crocheted trims, all of it vintage. It took me a couple of hours, and was only my second project using this method. And I couldn't be more pleased if you like Carol's shades more than mine. Makes me proud to have been her teacher.
