Finished! Now I need to figure out my matting/framing.

The speckles in the fabric are actually just the chair showing through from the flash; the black looks very solid and nice in person.

I dyed some 18 count aida navy for the Star Road map!

It's not quite the blue that 791 would have been, it's closer to 311, but it looks pretty close to the color on the screen so I think it will be fine.

For anyone interested, I used half of a packet of Dylon - Jeans Blue.

Update: almost done with the center column! I'll scroll to the left next and finish that half of the star I think, then the right half, then I'll do the cloud edges last.

Update; been a while on this one, since I switched over to a charity quilt square and some other projects. Got some good stitching done today though while watching Game of Thrones.
