My day started with helping Terry take care of baby turkeys, garden work and a little house work.  Then came piecing.   Look at the two triangles.  The one on the right has a nylon netting over the right side.
 Why the netting?

The netting adds a darker shading, which makes the stars look 3-dimmentional.

This class is part II of the "Desert Rose" pattern.  The class sample is in the background.

Here is one with a gold background...

...and a cream background.

Mother, Emily, and I eating at Xeina, a middle eastern restaurant.  We had a fun day in town together.

Very clever idea to use netting to give a 3 dimensional effect.

Oh what a fun afternoon! I like the way the netting shades half of the diamond giving it depth. And it was great to see you, Mother, & Emily. How special!
