This is my other WIP. This is Dimensions Santa and the Ark Stocking. It has been in and out of my stitching bag for a few years. It is on 18 count navy and I have trouble seeing the holes and working on such a small count. I use a magnifier some days. Other days I can see with no difficulties. Somedays it goes along smoothly and other days not so well. I am determined to stick with this one until it is finished. This is #5 in a series of Christmas stockings for my nieces, nephews and grandchildren. I don't think it will be done for this Christmas but maybe next? I hope by stitching on it only once a week I will not toss it to the bottom of the pile again. Yesterday was stitching at Ann's. Spent a great deal of time chatting and catching up on everyone's work since I had been away for three weeks. I did get a few stitches in Annemarie's RR but not enough to photograph yet. I am looking forward to the retreat at Ann's this weekend. I think Dani and Christin are planning to spend the night with me since Ann's place will be full. These girls stitch until 1 a.m. or later. I can't last that long but I always try.
