Greek Mandala #16

This part took me a little longer than the previous, but I think it's looking fantastic! And since I had to take it off the scrolls to get to the next corner, here's a photo!

Before:

After:

On the work front, however, I had to quit my promotion. Things hit the fan about two weeks ago and I decided that it wasn't worth it. Three months of the hardest work I've ever done and pulling the craziest hours I've ever pulled. Two 200+ billed months in a row and I was on track for July being the same. Then some things happened and H³ asked me to quit. So I did. And now I'm back to doing what I did before, and what I do best. And I'm so much happier for it.

We have also booked a vacation to Poland - 2.5 weeks of no work and fun travel. Can't wait.

On that note, I'm going to go play some video games (Witcher III!). Happy stitching, everyone!

Gorgeous work on Greece, such wonderful buildings.
Good for you on the job decision. Sometimes no amount of money is worth that amount of stress. Have a wonderful time in Poland.

I think H^3 is completely right, no job is worth it if you suffer or burn out! And since you are a wonderful, charming and educated lady, I am sure you will be able to find something else which will make you much happier =)

Lovely work on Greek Mandala, I love to see all those little motifs appear =)

Great update on this Mandala, I really like the designs around the central square.

Your work changes sound positive, I hope this works for you. Money isn't everything and hopefully this way you will be happier.
