Studio Series: B&W collage 7

BW Collage 7 © Karen Thiessen, 2016
Today I finished my income tax preparations and earlier this month I completed a whack of professional writing and now there is less to stand in the way of long uninterrupted stretches in the studio. Office work is not my favourite activity but I feel a profound sense of relief that I've followed through vs. avoided it.

On another note, this year I am challenging myself by relearning how to sew my own clothes. I'm taking classes at my local indie sewing store and I'm loving it. Now, I just need to overcome my fear of making buttonholes! I'll write about the significance of sewing clothing again means to me in another post.

Just the thought of button wholes leaves me trembling with fear. Good luck!

Taxes are next week for me; still moving through the "shoulder" season, but things are slowly being cleared away for me as well. While we've talked about sewing clothes and you, I look forward to seeing how your thoughts manifest in the written form.
