Panda Progress and Mystery Ornament

Well, I'm over halfway done on this large black area on the panda - the largest in the piece. These pictures were taken yesterday evening and I've made a bit more progress on the panda since. I'll definitely have this large area done in a week. And the Mystery Ornament - I have six more cross stitches and then the specialty stitches and it's done. Since it's one of two ornaments I have to put in the mail by the 20th, I've been taking it with me to work on while I wait for my children to get done with various things. LOTS of progress since last week because of that. I'll let you draw your own conclusions about how much time I spend waiting for my kids. I haven't even started the other ornament yet - it will probably be the Chatelaine freebie Christmas mandala on her website. I'll do the same kind of thing with it. If that doesn't get finished, I have the pulled thread ornament I finished last month to send instead. It's at an exhibition at Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm right now; my local face to face chapter of the EGA, Pocono Mountain Stitchers, holds one there every other year. They thought it was good to have projects of every size and type to encourage people to stitch. The exhibition's not judged except by those who walk through and cast ballots for their favorite piece. I don't expect to get that!
