Can I See a Show of Hands?

Anyone who has ever become so caught up in a piece of needlework that they fell prey to the dreaded "just one more stitch" syndrome will know exactly what I'm going through right now. I am loving this Moroccan sampler. I'm so excited about seeing the colors bring the motifs alive and can't wait to get to the next one!
The assymetrical second motif bothers me a little right now, but as soon as I fill in around it I'll be okay. I keep leaning to the side when I look at it like it's going to expand out to the right and become more balanced.

The sad thing is that at some point I'll have to put it down and work on some birthday presents and other obligatory stitching. It's 22 inches long, so you know I'm not going to finish it without taking a break...or am I? hmmm?
