Great Green Bushes of Doom

I scanned the second week's progress on R&J. As you can see, I'm making some progress but I'm hardly flying through the piece. I can see why the border gets tedious. And the "Great Green Bushes of Doom" as nicknamed on the board also get troublesome with so many shades of green and grey blended together. I can also comprehend why I like the loop start so much for cross-stitch. Every-time I start a new blend, I invariably find the place where I didn't tie down the previous one well enough, when it comes undone, thus necessitating unnecessary frogging. Can we say "Argh?"

I managed to get a little more work done on Juliet's gown, mostly filling in those purples next to the pinks/reds.
