Summer Ball update lost MoJo

This is last weeks progress of Summer Ball.  It is moving right along however, I haven't even worked on it this week.  For some reason, I have just been avoiding this project.  I don't know why, but I am not happy to work on it.  I have been battling some minor depression so I think this may play a part of it.   This school year has been hectic.  So far this year we have had:
2 students die ( one was my favorite little ducklings)
2 teachers attacked (both are ok)
1 student hit by a bus who is in neurological ICU but making progress

Needless to say it has been stressful.  Plus,  I sprained my ankle and after it was almost healed, I re-sprained it.   So I haven't been able to exercise for a month and have gained back all the weight I have lost.  So I haven't been in the best place right now.   I did work on and finish a RR piece which I will post later.

today was the first day I did a minor workout and my ankle felt ok.  I wore the small brace on it and it felt OK.   Hopefully, I can start losing weight again.  I think I am going to work on my A Wintry Heirloom my HAED project.  Maybe I can finish the tree I have been working on for a while.

I'm sorry to hear the school year has been tough so far. I hope things improve just a little bit. I do hope your ankle gets better and your stitchy bug comes back soon. Here's a thought: think of Disney. Hopefully that will bring a little smile on your face. :D

Your Summer Ball looks beautiful. Of course you can put it aside for awhile and stitching something else. I'm looking forward to seeing the tree on A Wintry Heirloom!

I hope your ankle stays healed from now on!

I am sorry, I hope things get a little easier for you. Keeping everyone in the school in my thoughts, I lost a teacher and a fellow classmate in high school and it was hard.
