When I say I am weird,

I'm sure by now you know I speak the truth.
And you're wondering when I will finish this fruit'in fox.  Soon.  And then you will understand more about why I was always asking your opinion, which I really appreciate and thank you for.
After reading your comments, some of which STILL do not come through to my email thank you very much Google, I wondered if the brown would be better. 
 A little trick I do, is to use Photo Gallery and Paint to change color and placements on areas where allowable.  So I changed the color to brown to see how it would look.  I'm not crazy about it, but am leaning toward removing the black stitches and using the brown, either 3031 or 3371.  I just tossed the browns on the linen originally, this manipulated photo is a better representation.  It's a little time consuming but I have my methods honed since I do the same for the box labels.  Lots of cut copy paste resize rotate!  I'd rather see this before I remove and change only to find out I don't like it. 
I didn't take into account the black stitches on the fox, and those will show better without all the other black.  I guess when you change everything, charting the entire design in chosen colors before you start would be a MUCH better idea than winging it as you go.  I've learned a lesson.  So tonight, another removal and color change, but if it's for the better it will be worth it.  And every time I create more work for myself, I get an extra piece of chocolate.  So far, this fox had 2 bags of Dove.
Have a great weekend!

marly, i LOVE the way you think; especially the chocolate rationalization! whats important is that YOU love your finished stitching. and if writing about it helps the decision process, then carry one- we are always here to read, agonize with you, and offer our opinions!

Every time I wing it, I create so much more work for myself, too! I'll never learn but sounds like you have! Great Idea about photoshopping the colors!

Marly, you are one "foxie" lady. You amaze me with your patience and fortitude while trying to decide what you like the best.
I would never dare to offer an opinion, being the novice that I am, but I like to read the opinions of your other readers. I can't understand how you can rip/cut out your stitches and not mess up the linen. Beautiful work so far.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Brown , now I can at least see it is a bird. Photo shop great idea!

Tricky tricky doing the photoshop-y thing - what a great idea! Brown on the roof looks *much* better. And as someone else said, the bird is very definitely a bird now.

The chocolate reward is a great idea too.

Not sure I've said it before, but I'm loving how the design is looking in your colors on that linen.

Good idea on using the computer to see how the color change will look. I wouldn't have thought of doing that-- nor do I know how to. lol!
