Right now, I have only four cross stitches in progress, and the magic number I would like to have is three. One large one, one medium one, and one small one. I currently have two large ones, one medium, and one small. Before I give in and start more, I want to finish three of the current ones, the small, medium, and one of the large pieces.

I like Christmas ornaments. They make good gift tags and are cute and often cheap, so I have kind of a lot of kits of ornaments hanging around. I started this one back in undergrad, either my third or fourth year, so it's probably seven years old. I love the detail in these and love stitching these small pieces. I just wish I didn't have to do all nine to call it complete!
Large piece #1:
This is my go-to large piece since it's pretty close. It's the project that lives by my bed and gets a few stitches a day (or at least, did when I had the time/energy to stitch a little before sleeping). I've just got to finish Mickey and then do all the backstitching and glow-in-the-dark details, not much further now! I started this one in undergrad as well, thinking it wouldn't take too much time. Idiot.
Large piece #2:

This one hasn't been touched since undergrad and won't be for quite some time I'm sure. Once I finish the other three projects, I know I'll be working on some of my own smaller pieces. Or I may give in and start one of the also-large-but-smaller or also-large-but-more-white-space kits. This one is not only the largest Art of Disney kit size (18"x24"), it's also almost devoid of white space (non-stitched areas). Someday, I will get around to it, but that day is not soon!
