I think the scans turn out good- is clear and has a nice dark background!

 

The square is truly lovely. I love the star and I love the colors you chose, too! This one goes on my to-do list!

I am just about to finish this square, I'm on the 2nd to last row (though, probably going to do 2-3 rows, of the last row, as I need my square to be 12 inches, instead of 10)...and I'm almost surprised at how easy it was, for all the special stitches and all. This was probably the hardest pattern I've followed yet (but, it was still not real hard for me)! But it was a lot of fun. Thanks so much!! :):clap
