Monday, Monday

Let's see... the Red Sox lost a game... there was another funny episode of Two And A Half Men on TV... I am working on An Emblem of Love... yep, it must be Monday! So, here is tonight's progress. Next week I hope to stitch the swan in the medallion. The swan is my favorite part of the whole sampler :-)

I just had to share this! Here is Lun Lun the Giant Panda with her newborn daughter, yet to be named (she will be named in a naming ceremony after she is 100 days old - right now, she is only 19 days old). The photo is from the Zoo Atlanta website, and the little girl was born the first week of September... how precious is this? Lun Lun holds her baby much like a human momma does. Zoo Atlanta has a Panda Cam that lets you watch Lun Lun and the baby!

One more day of work, then off to CATS!!

Oh, I got Dianne's Neighborhood RR in the mail today - and in it was a packet of belated birthday gifts from Su! She sent me the chart for St. Peter's Fair by Shepherd's Bush, which I am sure she saw on my wish list - thank you, sweetie!! And... she stitched me something so incredibly sweet! I will try to share a photo tomorrow, as I could not get a good one tonight!

Stitched on today: An Emblem of Love

Your emblem is coming along nicely, its the first one I have seen that isn't monochrome. I also like the baby panda, we have Tai Shen here in DC and he is so adorable.

Emblem of Love is really coming along. Thanks for sharing the panda pictures with us. I looked at the Panda Cam but it looks like Mommy is sleeping at the moment. Have a great times at CATS. I'm starting to put the idea in my head to attend next year. Time will tell...lol.
