I made a load of sparkly rosettes and put them in my shop (there’s a link in the bio)… happy Thursday!!

You can’t pour from an empty cup

I gave myself an unplanned day away from the sewing machine yesterday … a spell of insomnia was really starting to take its toll 😬and I suddenly realised it was completely crazy to just keep on keeping on. .
Of course I spent a lot of the day thinking about the fact that I hadn’t sewn a stitch or been active on my social media account, and I was really thinking I wouldn’t post today either … but then I remembered this picture and thought it seemed fitting.
.
So I met my mum for a cup of tea. I didnt do any close work, I did no housework, I took my son Oscar out after school to have a catch up, I drank about 400% more water than I have done in weeks (and didn’t have a headache for the first time in days either) I made sure I fed myself properly. And as well as feeling an awful lot better for it, the world didn’t stop because I did (even Instagram took a pause yesterday, so it must have been the day for it).
.
Have a good day x . . .
