Currently how many WIP (works in progress) do you have going? Currently I have four cross stitch projects going and another two which I need to start. I thought this might also help keeping us motivated to get our projects done. Here are the pics of three of mine so far;

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I have a swap piece going and then have to do an embroidery for a baby shower and a cross stitch for a wedding. Maybe soon I'll start my Christmas stitching. Cheesy

I love the colors on that bookmark. Looks good enough to eat! (No, I do not eat thread. On purpose anyway.)

More projects planned than executed.

I actually had two finishes recently, my first in a long time, and I'm really liking how it feels!  With the finishes on the baby bibs and the pincushion, I'm down to two:

Rebecca Ringquist's Summer 2010 sampler: http://www.flickr.com/photos/75383639@N00/4932711219/
That's close to finished.  I have a few plant stems, some flowers, and some bullion and French knots left, and then the finishing.

Laura J. Perin's Bluebonnet Collage: http://www.stitchers-paradise.com/detail.cfm?ID=948 I'm more than half done, but that still leaves a lot to go. The next time I do charted canvaswork, I'm gridding my canvas first!

After these, I'd like to do one or two really small, high-reward projects for myself -- little things in colors I really like.  Then I may tackle a some kind of baby gift for a pregnant friend -- either a huck weaving blanket, or an embroidred stuffy or ball.  I'm also starting to learn about crazy quilting, with the idea of making myself an ocean-themed purse incorporating some great shells I found in Florida with holes pre-drilled by wave action!

These look like great projects.  I'm a one project woman when it comes to embroidery.  I just keep plugging away until one gets done before I let myself start another.  Self-imposed torture.  I'm currently working on a Christmas present for my brother-in-law stitching words with all satin stitching, each letter takes me an hour.  I'd kind of like to put it aside and do a short and sweet project, but I'm afraid if I put it aside I'll never finish it.

yes that is one of the reasons why I used to just do one project at a time. However several people I know their people's are around the same time or other events, so that is why I had so many going on.
