I just wanted to say a big heartfelt Thank You to all you kind people who left nice comments on my last post... as your kind words proved; the online sewing and fashion community is such a beautifully supportive and helpful community, isn't it?
And just want to reassure you that the real life (not internet) "porky" insult levelled at me by my "friend" didn't hurt me so much for its content, as I do have many many faults for sure, but "porky" didn't really strike me at my heart all that deeply! It was just the fact of being singled out for disdain that hurt. Plus that I felt a wee bit humiliated, as you do. This particular girl has said rude things before and obviously has a, shall we say, slight deficiency in etiquette, but is still part of a group I meet up with, so can't be avoided. I'm sure everybody has experienced such people in their lives and understands what I mean. I try to think of people like this as a little fly in the soup of life; a bit yucky when you come across them, but not bad enough to spoil the rest of the bowl.
I wish I could gather us all together in one spot where we could sip tea, chat, and check out each others creations for real! Wouldn't that be nice?
