College #79

Despite the long hours and the long commute, I put in another 2,000 stitches!



I will try to have a page finish with the next update. That still doesn't guarantee that I will have a finish by the end of this year, particularly with the newest life update. Even if I don't finish it in time for Christmas, though, it will still make a great gift.

Last week was my birthday and I entered the last year of my 20's. The day itself was pretty uneventful. I went to work, I came home, and we ate so much sushi I could barely move. All in all a good day. Gifts were lovely, of course, and The Crafty Princess did it again and sent me a lovely little dragon from Charting Creations to add to my dragon-obsessed collection:

Isn't he lovely? I still need to name him. I already have a dragon named Benedict, and my friend has a little dragon named Henry, so he needs a good name.

So in regards to my last post, the good things I've been keeping close to the chest: I've been going through a fairly extensive interview process for a great position in a top-tier law firm. Long story short I signed the offer letter on Wednesday. :) We're still waiting on some paperwork to go through before I find out when my first day will be, but I'm really excited. This will be a great step for us especially since H³ left work to go to grad school, which is also a very important step. The job itself is great, although I may be working even longer hours. But you take some you give some and ultimately this is a wonderful thing.

All in all, life is good. I don't know when I find time for anything anymore, stitching inclusive, but apparently I do so I'm not complaining. Just taking life one day at a time and hoping for the best, always.

With that, I wish you all a fantastic weekend, and happy stitching!

College #78

So I guess I haven't posted since July. I'm a bad blogger! To be fair, work has been incredibly exhausting, I ran a half marathon, and I recently started weight lifting again, which requires a 5am wake up. So things have been busy. I haven't had a huge amount of time to stitch, but I did manage to get just over 2,000 stitches in on the next page of College. The end is near!



I am just itching to finish this. So much so that I have pretty much abandoned all other projects in favor of getting as much done as I possibly can.

My post tonight is going to be super boring. Between work and the gym I don't have much time for anything else. There's something potentially happening right now, but I'm keeping it really close to the chest until I hear more and/or some definite things happen. All good things, though, I hope!

Until next time (which I hope will be sooner than this post was), happy stitching!
