As I say, I had a rough week, and reading this
– on valuing your work, and yourself – pulled me up. Specifically, the bit about women being reduced to tears when not allowed to criticise themselves
. You know what that’s like, don’t you? Or maybe you know how it feels to cry at a compliment? Well, I do. And I needed to read that.
I’m putting the finishing touches on a couple of cowls, so watch out for that next time. One’s simple and designed for my kid. One’s fancy and I can’t wait to wear it out myself. Both use the dragonscale stitch. I feel like a little bit of dragon skin around my neck – elegant, but steely – might be just the armour I need.
