9/5/11 Wild Thing

What what??  Two post updates in a row?  It's been a good weekend.  My housework has suffered greatly, but I've gotten a lot done on this project and it's looking so good!

Started on the panda bear yesterday (which just so happens to be my favorite part of this sampler!) and couldn't put it down until he was finished.

I love the colors for this part of the piece and the way his feet hang out over the edge.  Although I'm saving most of the backstitching until the very end, I couldn't help but do a bit on his face.  he looked a little creepy without a nose and mouth! 

Now that my long weekend is practically over, I won't have as much time to work on this.  My friend just updated her status to say that she's heading to the hospital and may be in labor which is so exciting!  Once the panda is totally done, then the hardest parts are over with and I can get started on all the little details. 

Tomorrow, our daily grind of school days begins again.  I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and gets lots accomplished today!!
