Several weeks of stitching progress

It's time to get back to normal and I've got to get caught up on my stitching posts. I left off Snow White here:
SnowWhite026
Considering the time I spent at hospice, I didn't get too far with her before it was time to switch for the week, so I left off here in a rather awkward position:
SnowWhite029
I decided to go back to Night Wish for a while. I left off here in February:
NightWish022
And stopped here on Friday night:
NightWish028
I did most of the work on her in hospice, but once everything was all said and done, I needed several non-stitching days before I picked her back up again only to find my heart wasn't in it.

I had an itching to go back to Maleficent, which I haven't touched since March:
maleficent090
And I stopped on her tonight here:
maleficent093
I'm going to continue on her for the rest of the week. I should be switching to Happy Haunts, but I'm just not feeling it. I did hit up the HAED sale and I got a couple more Once Upon A Time stitches from Tilton Crafts, including The Huntsman:
Once-Upon-A-Time-Huntsman_000a
And the Mad Hatter:
Once-Upon-A-Time-Mad Hatter_000a
I just hate that the artist never drew a Charming and that Tilton didn't chart the Regina and Snow picture, only the Regina cut out. I want Charming so bad I can almost taste it, but what can I do? If anyone knows how to get a hold of Daniel Kordek, I'd love for him to do a Charming to match the other guys (and for Tilton to chart it)!

As for the HAED newbies, I managed to clear off a chunk of my Wishlist:
Valentine Dragon by Jasmine Becket-Griffith:
Valentine Dragon_000a
Mending A Broken Heart by Jasmine Becket-Griffith:
Mending A Broken Heart_000a
Penitent Magdalene by Jasmine Becket-Griffith:
Penitent Magdalene_000a
Rapunzel by Annya Kai (thanks Heather...this decision was influenced by you!):
Rapunzel AK_000a
And Rio by Aimee Stewart
Rio_000a
I just hate that the original picture of this with Duran Duran in it was never charted:
D2 Rio
And come to think of it, I didn't show the last batch of HAED's I bought during the last sale. I managed to get all my Aimee Stewart bookshelves in Supersized and Max Color versions as well as some others...

Alice in Monet's Waterlilies by Jasmine Becket-Griffith:
Alice in Monets Waterlillies_000a
Beauty and the Beast by Jasmine Becket-Griffith:
Beauty and the Beast_000a
Cinderella at Midnight by Jasmine Becket-Griffith:
Cinderella At Midnight_000a
Snow White and her Animal Friends by Jasmine Becket-Griffith:
Snow White And Her Animal Friends_000a
Castle Fest Wendalin Aotenshi by Babette Vandenberg:
Castle Fest Wendalin_000a
and Lady Avalon by John Shannon:
Lady Avalon_000a
And I hope that gets me caught up!

Awesome progress on both Keiley. Oh I love your new stash. Wish I was brave enough to stitch HAED's. It would take me 10 years to do one. But, I love the ones I'm working on now and will stick with them.

Great work on all your BAPs. You can really see the progress on each one too.
Nice new stash, there's a lovely variety, plenty of different styles to choose from in future.

Great progress on all your huge projects! I hope your stitching has brought some comfort during your recent troubles, if not then the shopping must have done!
