Generally speaking, this is a technical blog. I keep my personal baggage out of it. Today I'm going to break that guideline a little bit.
At the end of last year, I was pretty bogged down; I decided to make a plan. It was, for all intensive purposes, a self-curriculum to refresh and build my tailoring, patternmaking and design skills back to at minimum what they were when I left design school. That plan was perhaps TOO structured. I didn't follow through on it. In fact, I didn't do much of anything for several months into the new year, including sewing.
I started seeing a therapist. Five months later, I left treatment with her with a few really valuable takeaways.
