It’s taken a bit for me to realize that it is ok to be kind to myself. I put a lot of expectations and stress on myself when it comes to making things/doing things/ and just plain existing.
Today I realized that it IS ok to be kind to myself and not ride my case because the things I am doing aren;t coming out how I want them to, or are just flops.
That’s ok. And I have to be ok with that too.
I can’t say when the last time was that I sewed clothing in 1/6 scale. Most of the sewing I’ve done over the last year has been for my other hobby, the SCA. So the sewing small stuff fell by the wayside and I concentrated on making clothes for 1:1.
But now I am trying to get back into the 1/6 sewing and it is proving frustrating. But I think if I keep taking deep breaths, get up and walk away from the sewing machine and try to be more lighthearted about my attempts–it should be ok.
It is bound to be better if I can at least shut up my inner critic for a while 😉
