Recently, I decided to try my hand at pattern making. I assumed that because I know how to draw, know how to draft my own patterns, know how to use the programs that can make the patterns and have the time to make them that it would be a cake walk. No such luck.
I came to the realization that this isn’t the right direction for me when my partner approached me about cursing at my computer for an hour straight. I thought I was doing well, considering I was making a move to get off the programs that were frustrating me, but my partner heard something different. I was clearly more frustrated than what is healthy.
Time to move on.
I’ve found yet another thing that I love to do, that combines multiple talents and has a diverse range of methods to keep me interested. It’s been difficult coming to this conclusion, but I have to know when it’s time to move on. I will not be announcing my new venture until I’ve at least tried it for awhile. Yeah, won’t be making THAT assumption again.
