Feeling better.

One of the things Bren said to me yesterday to try and make me feel better was how amazing the crafty blog community are and how supportive we all are of each other. My reply was that my blog to date, was more of a visual diary than a personal diary and who knows how the blog community would react to an emotional post let alone a negative one.

So I gave it a go and posted about my crappy day and what do you know but there you all were to support me, encourage me and reassure me that I am not alone.

You have no idea how much this means to me. How many times I have read and reread your comments and how they have helped me feel better.

I do feel better today. Somewhat emotionally hungover and fragile but better.


I guess the blog community is all of our secret weapon too.

We have a three year old bug party to go to today. When these dry, I'll sew some gathers in the spotty fabric and stitch it to the singlet to make a dress for the birthday girl.

I hope you are having a lovely Sunday.


  1. Glad today is treating you better Kate.

    Look how much you are acheiving !!!All those shirts!

  2. I Love those bugs!
    Glad you are feeling better today

  3. Yay! So glad you are feeling better. You shouldn't forget that you too are one of the most supportive and encouraging crafty bloggers out there. I'm always happy when I know that Kate has dropped by for a visit to my page.

    Take care for the rest of the weekend.


  4. Mwaaaaaaaaah!! Love the lady bugs- very sweet.

  5. I haven't read your post from yesterday but I am glad that you are feeling better and encouraged.
    I love those t shirts.
    Do you make them for mummy size ladies??? i would totally buy one!

  6. Oh I was just going to ask if you make them in a size 12 for girls as I would love one for Isabelle, they are so cute. I am glad you are feeling better Kate, and yes I always feel much happier when I know you have popped by too. The blogging community is like a circle of friendship isnt it, just when your feeling blue or having a crappy day people are there to show they care about you. You should know Kate that you are one of my favourite bloggers so cheer up and have a wonderfully happy day!

  13. Hi Kate, emotional hangover, great term- I totally get what you mean- well, those words describe well something I relate to- the day after the crying sad day!
    Whoa, the lady bugs- great, particularly the red and on the dotty. I like it that you know a 3 year old having a bug party. I would like to go somewhere as a bee, but I think that might get disqualified on a technicality!
    Have a great week.

  14. Love the ladybird dress idea, how gorgeous, what a lucky little girl.

    Glad you are feeling better, isn't the blogging community fabulous?

    A real circle of stones.

  15. Kate, the little bugs are terrific, and the dress idea lovely too! Hope you beat those blues, I am happy you find the blogging world a support, I do too -it's such a blessing when life gets too overwhelming!
    Take good care,
