Stressin' and Stitchin'

Life has thrown several curveballs my way as of late which have left me very stressed. My DH has come up with some health issues and has to have some tests done but we have to wait two more weeks before this will happen. Both of our cars have had some serious health issues too. We had been toying with the idea of getting me a new one and after jumping the dumb car twice on Monday, we drove it straight to the dealer and traded it in and put DH's car in for major repairs. Then there's the roof. We have needed a new one and then had some wind damage, but not enough for the insurance to pay for a whole new roof, so we got an estimate. Boy has the cost of a roof gone up since the last time we got one.

Normally, I don't stitch when I'm stressed, but instead dive into a book so I don't have to think. But this time I have been stitching and frogging because my concentration is so bad.

I did finish Primitive Needle's Simply Live. I love how it turned out with Jan's conversions.

I stitched my June ornie, a freebie by Sharon Crescent, and have made some progress on LHN's Yesteryear.

I've got several more WIP's that I've been working on a several new starts trying to get my attention.

Tomorrow I get to go play with my grandson Daniel because Beth's sitter cancelled on her. That should be a fun but tiring day.

Here's hoping that the 90 degree temps leave quickly.

Thanks for the wonderful comments and happy stitching!
