Stars For A New Millenium, Progress #2

Clark Gable is finished!  This square went quickly, except for the couched inside corners.  Those little corners are made of Trebizond couched with 2 strands of silk floss.  I didn't think I would like them, but once they were done they are fine & coordinate nicely with the little dark squares in Marilyn!  the outer corners are stitched in Oriental Stitch.  You can hardly tell in the picture, but it is worked in 2 shades & I think one is too yellow. I'll probably take it out & redo it.  Next up will be to get started with the sashing and borders. 
Here are the 2 squares I have finished so far.  Now for the fun part:  Go to Jan's blog and see her progress.  She has started the sashing so we aren't quite together, but it is so fun to compare!  Jan's is so much brighter than mine, but I'm happy with both.

Wonderful! It will be as elegant as a Tiffany box when you're done.
