Progress photo-slow but steady
My current progress on the Britter Puppy. He's coming along. I don't know why I think of this puppy as a "he"--maybe cause it looks like Beazer to me, maybe because I want a strong dog for the quilt square, maybe I'm just a freak. I did make another 2 small color changes. The original chart showed the outer petals of the flower in Hibiscus with the inner in Aztec Red. The DMC for this is 3778 and 347. I am not too sure about how good a conversion that is on the Hibiscus; my skeins are a bit pinker, not deep peach. The 3778 looked good with the rest of the colors, but that 347 was going to be JARRING, so I changed the inner part to 224. It looks better, and she liked pink, so I think it was a good choice. I stitched watching "Licence to Kill" last night with HTB. It was not bad, but I'm not a big James Bond fan. I will admit though, I do like Daniel Craig as James far better than Pierce Brosnan, and I still shake my head over the idea of Hugh Grant as James; at one time he was considered for the role. James is suave, confident. Hugh is best when he is being a bumbling Gen Xer. Just my opinion, though . . .
