Lili, I am going to stick with your advice and keep with Bugs until he is finished. I made a start on the silver within the border. Not enough for a photo update though.
Stitch, I actually rarely use the aperture cards. One of the first cards I stitched called for the edging of the fabric to be frayed and then the design attached to the top of a plain white card. I liked it that way and I have stuck to doing it that way ever since.
I have been doing my best to avoid the World Cup. I apologise to all fans and to everyone who is supporting it but football bores me to tears. I'm not going to pretend it doesn't just because the World Cup is supposed to be special. I am not a bitter Scot and do hope England will do well. I even took part in the sweet stake in work but that is as far as my support will go. So instead I have been watching DVD's. Growing fond of David Tennent in Dr Who I came across "Blackpool", a musical TV series originally shown on the BBC a few years back. It stars David Morrisey as the owner of an arcade who wants nothing more than to turn Blackpool into Vegas. His plans fall apart when he becomes the prime suspect of a murder. David Tennent plays the police officer investigating the murder and falls for the prime suspects wife (played by Sarah Parish).
Thankfully the singing is done in an almost Karaoke style. They sing underneath the songs themselves so you can just barely hear them singing along. I found myself cringing at them but unable to look away. In the end I actually found myself looking forward to these sing alongs. I even found it funny. It is definitely different. One of those things which are good to watch with a friend as you can laugh at it together.
Lili, changing actors annoy me too. However, the companions of the Doctor have always changed. It became part of what Doctor Who was and they changed more often that the Doctor. So in this instance I really don't mind it and it always kept the show fresh. Or at least in my mind it did. If you talk to most Doctor Who fans as well as their favourite Doctor they will have a favourite companion too. I'm afraid I haven't heard of Chameleon. What is it about?
I will try to find a link to the series I was mentioning (it's been over for a few years now) and include it in my next post -soon, I hope...
Looking forward to seeing Bugs: the more I see him take shape, the more I love him!
Lots of hugs!
In my eyes he is the better of the new Dr Who's, he's kind of along the same par as Tom Baker.
Several favourite companions! I liked all the female companions through Troughton's run, Polly, Victoria and Zoe, and laterly Peri who I thought harked back to the earlier ones mentioned.
I remember 'Blackpool' - it was the first thing I saw David Tennant in. I thought it was interesting and brave to do a musical TV programme, it stayed in my mind!
I can't get enough of Dr Who at the moment although was disappointed in last week's episode. I was sad to hear Rose is going, I guess that means we won't see her Mum any more either.
I'm not a football fan either, can't see all the fuss about blokes kicking a ball about a field!
