Well - we finally have a door after over 2 weeks with plywood standing between us and the elements. It is certainly not as pretty as our old door which had 9 panes of glass in the upper section of the door. It will just have to do. Apparently the more glass you have the more expensive the door so I had to opt for just a little glass. Doesn't really make a whole lot of difference as there is a whole glass wall right next to the front door. This craftsman house we live in has a lot of glass and wood which I love however when something like this happens - it does make you feel somewhat vulnerable.
Another blogger friend posted about losing their stitching mojo - I think I have lost all the wind in my sails too. I have done very little stitching and June is slipping away just like all my valued possessions did. I think maybe I have been sorta depressed - you just keep going as you do with any trauma in your life. This is not as serious as a death or accident, illness or other tragedy but to me it was a loss and a blow to my sense of security in my new home. We moved from a very bad area to an area that we thought was very safe. I had lived in the home my grandparents built since I was born - never in all those years - even in the recent years of decline in that area were we ever broken into. Of course there is always a first time and I am still glad we left that area.
Oh I've stitched a little this month but not enough to show WIP photos - I am almost finished with the wording on the A&E by Primitive Needle, am working on the fill in on the top border of Where the Hart Lives by SL and have hardly touched Shores of HRH. I did start the quaker SAL Mary Wigham but barely enough to say I started.
Hooking progress is even worse - nothing to talk about there - it's been dreadfully hot here in NE Florida - I mean record highs HOT - it was 100+ over the weekend with a heat index of about 110+ - I'm sure my Arizona friends will scoff and laugh but that is hot for June in NE FL. So sitting under a wool rug doesn't seem too appealing at the present time. I do have rug guild this coming weekend so I will find a "not so big" rug to work on there.
Knitting WIP;s are in about the same sad state - I have some mindless knitting next to my chair and I may do a few rows on one of the shawls that don't require a pattern to keep track of but that is about it.
Thanks for all the kind words on my last post. It really helps to know that you have friends out there who do care what you are going thru. So - I'm going to close my new door on the feelings of resentment and anger and go and hunt for my stitching mojo - be back with you soon and some WIP photos - I promise!
