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 . . .

The doggie is looking so cute. Good idea on the color changes.

I was a firm Pierce Brosnan fan, but I guess he was getting a bit too old for the part. The 'new guy' (as I call him) is different, but I like him too.

I don't think I've ever seen Hugh Grant in anything serious. Maybe he'd be good if given a chance.

This is such a sweet design and I think your color choices for the flowers are perfect :o)

I love James Bond and I think my favorite was either Sean Connery or Roger Moore.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
