I decided that I was going to do 10 scroll blanks to give to Antoinette, the Kingdom signet when I saw her at Wildwood (which coincidentally was when I needed to deliver the scroll I did for Amalie’s Millrind).
Yea it was crazy bonkers to do that, I know. And I didn’t have any real reason to do it other than to see if I could do it. You know what I mean? Everyone keeps telling me I’m going to burn out if I’m not careful…but I think I’m a good enough judge of when I’m skirting that line. Isn’t that why I have other non-scadian hobbies, after all? (you know, writing, playing with dolls, making miniatures etc.) Yea. It is.
But I do realize everyone is telling me this stuff with my best interests at heart. I know it.
But sometimes I feel like I’m getting push back from family & friends for trying to test myself and my limits. I want to do things and then I do them. I’m an adult (well, my age says that more than my brain or attitude) and can do what I want.
Why do C&I?
Because it’s way waaaay waaaay easier than sewing new garb (If I’m going to burn out doing something it’s gonna be making garb for myself and Jasper because inbetween bouts of sewing and pattern draping I forget the process completely and have to start from square one every time. THAT is what makes me throw things in a pile and walk away.
Annnnnnnnnnnyway, I thought I’d share both Amalie’s scroll and the blanks I managed to get done for Wildwood. I’m proud of Amalie’s scroll.
The Scroll blanks are just OK. Some of them look better than others and Jasper deserves some credit as he kept me from throwing out the ones that I thought were naff.
Here they are:
We’ll see how they go over when I turn them in tomorrow!
