Computer working update - picture heavy

Picture update now that I've finally got a working computer again (although it doesn't seem to be liking blogger for some reason)!
First I have Heather, next page finished, and now put away for a while so that I can work on some other, much ignore projects! She sure does have a lot of hair, although she also has goggles now, which is very exciting to see. I've now got one and one partial page to finish the row, so I'm pretty comfortable that I'll achieve this New Year Target
Lancelot & Guinevere hasn't had any attention for far too long, probably the best part of a year, I've also decided that, as it only has 50 colours so I'm using it for another attempt at parking, and the top row has now been completed! I've really enjoyed it, as it's so long since I've worked on this it has novelty value, and I'll get the beginning of Lancelot & Guinevere on this page, which is exciting!
 I've managed to complete the second page of Pride and Prejudice, which I'm really happy with. I always fall back in love with this when I'm working on it, it stitches up so nicely and so quickly!
And finally, because I've decided that I'm not going to finish Chakra Fae (I just wasn't enjoying it, and didn't like the way it looked, so I took the hint) I've got a new start, Snowdrop Fairy by Joan Elliott, I've been promising myself a Joan Elliott start for ages, so I finally have... not much to show, I know, but isn't the fabric gorgeous? It's Lady of the Lake for Steph's Fabby from a RAK event at Christmas, and it's great!

They are all looking great. No use working on something you don't like.

Great progress! Shame about Chakra Fae but better to stop now than to force yourself to do something you don't like. x

It's always hard giving up a project you worked so long on, but sometimes it's the best choice. Cheers!

Lovely progress on your wips. Great new start. I can't see the point of stitching on something you are not enjoying.

You done a lot of beautiful work! You are right to stop when you don't like it. So you can spend your time on more joyfull things.

They all look great. Shame about Chakra Fae but as has been stated if you don't like working on it no point spending any more time doing it, it could just put you off stitching all together.

Whoo hoo I'm so happy to see you worked on Lancelot and Guinevere, I love that chart. All your wips are looking truly spectacular. And yes that fabby is beautiful and perfect for an Elliott Fairy!
