My newest WIP is Wedding Tango, a Riolis kit, which will be a gift for my daughter's friend's wedding in September. I've known her at least 10 years. The color of the shoes and bouquet will be changed to match the bride's colors. I'm also stitching it on 28 ct white linen instead of the 14 ct white Aida in the kit, and I will add their names and date at the bottom.
Since I recently finished my oldest WIP (Stained Glass Nativity, started in 1980), my oldest WIP now is Universal Unity by Dimensions Gold Collection. I started this one in 1998 and was making great progress on it for a few months, then it got put away and never touched again until 2012. Now I have cross stitch friends all over the internet encouraging me to keep stitching until this one is finished! I post an update on this one in the YOTA SAL on the first Saturday each month. Here is the pic from the last post, when I started stitching the zebra stripes.

On my Saturday SAL with Linda and Kaye, I stitched 5 rows of the basket on Fall Welcome.

In the Bothy Threads Cut Thru' Monday SAL, I reached the bottom left corner of Cut Thru' North Pole House and stitched some water. I'm looking forward to using the variegated floss in the water, which is the same color floss that I used for the water in Cut Thru' Igloo.
