Project Joyce gets the green light!!

It's no secret that I have been TRYING to get a piece started for my buddy, the beautiful, amazingly talented wonder woman, known as JOYCE
If you are yet to be acquainted with her work, be sure to check out her project page on RAVELRY!!
Back in 2015, I was lucky enough to be sent a Joyce masterpiece as a thank you present and I flipped out !

Yes, Joyce crocheted me this absolutely PERFECT Jimmy Dean piece and honestly, I was so touched and over the moon that obviously I had to make her something in return!!
Fast forward 3 FRIGGING YEARS And I am FINALLY getting my act together!!!
The picture above is the palette I will be using to create a piece for this super talented and brilliant lady! I am SO ASHAMED at how long it has taken me, however, after much to-and-fro-ing, swatching and frogging, I have FINALLY settled on this palette of 22 colours and my pattern is 100% finalised, which means... WE ARE GREEN FOR GO PEOPLE!!! WOOOO!!! !!

SO EXCITED guys!!! It should work up BEAUTIFULLY!
Of course, I have not forgotten Mr. Bogart! I'll continue to work on him too !
Thankfully, he isn't looking as scary as he did at the 50% update anymore!

He now has most of BOTH eyes
He still doesn't look like Bogie to me yet... I need that second eyebrow THEN we'll be cooking with gas!!
So stay tuned for Bogie updates and 'Mystery Joyce piece' updates !

Here's [almost] looking at you kid!

Mr. Humphrey Bogart has hit the half way mark!!! 50%!!!
LOVING the harsh shadows and bright light so much right now! It's really coming into effect now and that, teamed with the clarity coming through on his face, ugh rolling in happiness right now!!
I do believe I may have a bit of a 'Cary Grant' happening with the background again though which is a little disheartening I will admit. A tad on the 'splotchy' side. I don't think it's a blending issue, maybe more of a 'I-picked-a-background-that-may-have-been-too-detailed-to-successfully-make-the-shift-to-yarn' issue...
OR yellows and I are just doomed to never get along
No matter what happens at least I feel totally confident with the man himself! I definitely didn't catch him at the most attractive angle for his half way picture, but ouuuu it's exciting to get at least PART of a peeper in there now !!!
