I have more WIPs than is healthy

On The Wagon BB there's a 'post your current WIPs and photos' thread.

So I duly posted. And it looks like this. That's...not a good thing.
For those not a member there (I forgot you have to log in):
This thread is awesome, it's great to see all the pictures - there's a bit of everything here. Now to see if I can scrounge up photos of all my WIPs...

First, here's my current WIP:
St Nicholas by Solaria Gallery. A commission for a friend named Nikos (Nikolaos - Nicholas) in Greece, fun!

I have a few HAEDs - this is SK Iris Keeper:
Which I began but haven't got more than about 700 stitches done on. I should fix that, it's a gorgeous chart, but I'm...well I work OAAT until I get sick of a project (usually a few months) then pick up whatever WIP is screaming loudest!

QS A Restful Night:
Which needs a serious press because my tension was funky last time I worked on it and it's...lumpy, and I want to see if I can rescue it without frogging (heh) it.

QS Periwinkle Fae:
Which hasn't been worked on since last May which is a total crime because isn't she sweet? I should work on her again too.

Mystery X (Secret Victorian Garden)
This is about half done. And seriously calling, but I'm enjoying my current project too much at the moment. Pity, I miss it!

Japanese Octagon Box which you get two pictures of because I didn't take a picture of the whole thing when I worked on it most recently:
I love this piece and I work madly on it for a while and then stop because it's fiddly to get tension on. Another one that's currently screaming.

Not Chatelaines or HAEDs:
This is Tranquility Mystery Sampler (Von Wiehenburg)
It hasn't been worked on since last July. Feel free to slap me. I miss it, too.

Noon Basking by Dracolair:
This is a restart and I worked madly on it for a month or so but havent picked it up much since. Which is sad, I love this dragon.

Peaceful Paradise by Midsummer Night:
This has been my focus for most of the year so far. It's HUGE. On 40ct linen. And fun!

From The Gift of Stitching:
White Musings by Follow the Leader. Two photos again.
Beautiful but I get really sick of the bands by the time they're done. I might get this out again while watching tv sometime, it's the kind of thing that goes quicker then!

The Historic Countries Mystery Sampler
Thats half of pt 1. I know I've done more than this (on pt 1) but I haven't got a photo. Another one I really miss working on.

...oh goodness. I have issues.


*goes back to working on St Nicholas*

One stitch at a time, one WIP at a time. I really need to stop starting things. Even though I've only started three things this year...

Oh Wow! Fantastic WIP pieces Kyri. Have you thought about joining us Tuesday UFO Nighters over at JA/Stitch&Stashers forum? I've completed 2 long term UFO's since joining in & busy on a third. It may help. LOL :0)
