Oh Boy! Jan & I have started our Stars! Here is my first day's start on Square #1, Marilyn Monroe. I fell in love as soon as I finished the center with the overdye. Gorgeous! No problems so far. I am using metallics for all of the D threads (those of you who are stitching (or have stitched) Stars will understand!) which as far as I have been able to tell, is unusual. At least in this square, I really like the metallics.
The next day I was able to complete this square.
I really like it! I think it turned out great & I can't wait to tackle the next square.
Be sure to check out Jan's version, it is quite different and very pretty!
I am going to work the next 2 squares before I start on the borders and sashing as I think I want to use a lighter shade for the sashing than what is called for.
It may be awhile though. I am working on several things, with deadlines, that I can't even tell you about yet. But all of my personal needlepoint has to go on hold.
