A page finish - woo!

I'm really excited (it's probably quite sad how excited actually) because I've finished my first page of Lancelot and Guinevere, and it's actually starting to vaguely look like something, although possibly only if you know what you're looking for.
1 page down, another 18 to go (although 4 of those are minor pages).
This was actually my target for this year on this particular project, I set myself the goal of finishing my first page because I didn't know how long it was going to take me, so it turns out it was quite a low target and I probably should have set high. However, as it was my target and it has been achieved I'm thinking of putting this away for a while to work on some other targets. I've got 3 other projects on the go with a lot of work to be done so I think I might concentrate on those for a couple of months, especially as the kit I inherited off a friend because she's never going to get it finished for her intended friend so I need to work on that as well.
And in other news, did you see the wedding yesterday? Judging by a lot of the posts I've seen already then a lot of people did. I did see it, although, despite being in the UK I'm afraid that we hadn't travelled to London to see it, but we were invited to a street party by a friend so she invited us over to to watch the wedding with her first then went to the street party.
The dress was very pretty, as was her sister's maid of honour dress. There seem to have been some nice moments, and a couple of funny ones (did you see the cart wheeling verger and the police man leading the crowd in cheering?) Whatever you were doing yesterday, hope you had a lovely day.

It's clearly a window frame! Which is more than can be said for my lastest WIP. It looks like a llama with a shawl on it's back. Come have a look:

We watched the Wedding, I'm not wildly excited about it but it was very nice and I'm sure they will be very happy together.
It's just nice to have some good news for a change!

I bet you were doing a 'Happy Dance' with one page down.

Congratulations on your progress.

I don't know why my blogroll keeps mucking up and not showing me your new posts till a day later. Yamno... I'd say a page finished is something to get wildly excited about!! It looks great, btw. :D

Saw the wedding... I thought it was nicely done.
