Stars: Cary Grant Grows

Yesterday was hectic so I didn't get as much done on the Cary Grant block as I had planned but you can see how the corner square develops from the above.  The copper areas are supposed to be C (terracotta) instead of D (copper metallic) but I wanted to add more of this very strong color on the opposite end of the row so I switched what I used.  The next step is to weave my purple threads over the center area, then fill in the last open areas with laid threads.  Then I'll do the other corners like this one.  After that, the final touch is to lay long contrasting colored threads over many of the areas of this block where they touch other areas.

I picked up snaps yesterday.  Once I finish Cary Grant and his piece of sashing, I'll be able to continue assembling the skulls cell phone case.  I don't want to stop now since I'm on a roll with Stars.  At least that's my excuse for not immediately picking up the finishing again!
