I’m a happy girl. Even though my daughter has been away part of the week I have eventually got to the sewing machine today.
The hem on my dress is done and I’ve tried out the buttonhole stitch. I wasn’t sure how it would work out as doing a buttonhole is very different to my last sewing machine. However it isn’t as hard as it looks and I’m happy with the results. Now I just need someone to pin the straps of the dress in the right place so I can mark where the buttonholes go 🙂
My anxiety level has been higher than normal. It was my daughter’s first residential school trip so it was very weird. She had a fab time and loved it and I coped – even when dealing with a puncture on the way to the beach for a jog after waving her goodbye. My anxiety felt different this time. My head wasn’t all over the place as it normally would be so I could deal better with the anxiety. The only thing I have been doing differently is meditating. I will keep going with it and see what happens.
