Steps 6-9

Step six called for using Neon Rays 120 to create the Large Star Jessicas below the crescents from yesterday.
In step 7  using Pebbly Perle 86, the dark purple, Plaited Rays are stitched and then filled in with Fyre Werks 38.  The pattern called for Holo Fyre Werks FH9 which has been discontinued, so my shop owner contacted Rainbow Gallery and they said to substitute this as it was the closest in color. Step 8 is Loop Crescents inside the Large aqua crescents and is worked with 4 strands of Bijoux 439.  Step 9  was to fill inside the loop Crescents with long stitches.  The pattern called for Holo Frye Werks in 7 which is also no longer made, so they said to use Gold Rush 14 in 686C.  On all future call outs for these fibers, I will only mention the ones I am using

The thread substitutions are looking good, regardless of what the original model used. This is going pretty fast, too.
