Thank you everyone for your kind words of comfort. They help make me feel better.
I have been slowly sewing. It hurts my wrist a bit, but not as much as other tasks, so I can at least do something to keep myself occupied.
This time around it IS a blouse and it fits. That makes me happy! I am still not certain how I feel about having a printed pattern on a blouse, I usually wear solid colours except for sweaters. What do you think? Is this something I could wear out and about? Can I wear this to university, or should it be a stay at home top?
