so I did another 20 minutes where I added the green and the highlights with yellow (I think a white would be more dramatic as a highlight but I've no been told that in period what was used to create the green pigment had a bad reaction when lead white touched it so because I am doing this for A&S white would not be a good choice here........ I think I'm going to call it a night and I hope tomorrow I have time to do the shadows with brown..... or I might decide to focus on the embroidery for Neil's outfit..... it's sad I can't really do much with all the pieces cut out until the sleeves are ready because everything must come together at once if I'm going to get all the seams right
It's been really quiet with my other questers in fact I've only heard one other person really doing anything.... it's a bit frustrating since I still haven't heard back about my questionnaire and the checkoff list on the website show no changes so it's a bit sad..... anyone thinking about doing this is going to think it's impossible since it's been over 6 months and nothing has happened I keep posting to the list but I've heard no responses frankly I am beginning to think that I'm wasting my time doing this..... I mean it's great that I'm learning new skills and that I am doing all these fab projects but If I finish I feel I'm not going to get any recognition for reaching such a high goal and if I don't make it I will be viewed as just wasting my time..... I have posted all the write ups for y projects to our group and keep updating here but I doubt anyone is really looking...... I don't know.......... It's getting to a point I just want to throw my hands up in the air and say I quit but it's more then just the quest that is getting to me, it's this whole laurel thing as well....... I feel I've hit a wall and I'm asking for help and everyone keeps walking by..... I just don't know what else to do sigh.............. I also have what could turn out to be a huge personal issue that will come to a head I have no doubt when I go for the fighting category in fact I'm thinking of not attempting that category just so I can avoid the headache.......... grrr I don't know!
