 First, this one is an overall shot of the progress on the second layer.  I picked up again at step 26 with the Cat's eyes Jessicas using the Treasure Braid.  However, one card of fiber only did half of them, so I have ordered another card and will have to come back to them.
Step 27 is the small stars next to the red sheaf stitches and is worked with Kreinik #4 in 664.  The small star Jessicas inside the top interlocking crescents are done in two strands of Bijoux 465.  The large stars inside the bottom interlocking crescents is done with two strands of Bijoux 439.  I completed all four sets of steps 27, 28 and 29 and will continue on to page 16 and step 30 while waiting for the fiber to get here.

I have to say I love the cat's eye Jessicas. What do you think of all the fiber and color changes? Isn't that just too much work?
