Panda and Goldwork

I put these two together because I didn't make much progress on them this week. I had a meeting over in Pennsylvania, a friend came over to visit, and so on. Lots of stuff got in the way of stitching. Anyway, today I've been able to get back into the groove and also managed to dye five yards of fabric for a friend. When they're all done and set and ironed, I'll take pictures before sending them off. The panda is still going, not much to report. On the goldwork, I laid the ground for doing a dimensional area on the sampler. I've put everything close together because I have the idea I'll do something with the sampler once I'm done - perhaps make a small pillow or something. The piece I'm about to do over the string requires me to plunge the ends every single row. When I do that, I'm always afraid I'm going to damage the fabric. Lots of practice will teach me I'm not, I hope.
