 I have framed the Amadeus by laying Neon Rays in 09 instead of the called for #6 and then stitching with the
gold metallic over the top of it in Herringbone stitches.  Then, instead of staying with the instructions, I had to move to the outside to establish the edges.  The reason for this is instead of counting over to start the next pattern, I am having to delete some of the elements to fit the size of my tray....remember? I did the Stars in the corners.
They are called to be worked with one strand of Anchor 683 which my color is 799.  One strand was too little coverage to my taste, and two still did not cover, so I used three to create the stars.  I have also laid in one strand of Neon Rays in 55 instead of the green, as a start to identify more placement of future stitches.

It does look great. I love the blues with a touch of gold. Very classy!
