Celestial Dragon 2

These last 10 hours on Celestial Dragon have just crawled by. It's the busiest time of year at work - everyone wants to close their financings NOW. Which means I'm working 6-7 days a week. And I am TIRED. So this took a long time.



I'm doing all the stitching first and then will fill in the backstitching, beading, and french knots, but that won't be for a while. If you look REALLY hard on the right side, you can see the sparkly thread border. Those purple and periwinkle "whiskers" are also in sparkly thread. Hard to tell, but it's there.

I am so, so exhausted from work right now, and so burned out. I went up to the partners on Friday and just told them I need some time off in January to recharge. They told me to go for it, I put in my PTO request, and started planning out all the lazy days I would spend in my PJ's. Then I thought to myself, for kicks, how much tickets to Iceland cost at that time. So I checked. And I almost died. $300 roundtrip per person, direct flight from SFO. Impossible. So I told H³. Who told me we had to scoop those tickets up.

So I'm going to Iceland with H³ for the third time in January for a week! Everyone has their favorite place on earth they would go in a heartbeat. Mine is always Iceland.

I can't wait.

Happy stitching, everyone!
