My embroidery work is now up at Tilde, as I had mentioned previously. I had an excellent time putting this show together and hanging it, and Debbe Hamada, the owner of Tilde, is such a sweet and wonderful person to work with. In fact, these photos are courtesy of Debbe, since my camera battery chose a very inopportune time to die.
I'll share these embroideries on the blog here throughout the two months that the show will be up, but you're welcome to take a look at them on the Tilde website, where they are also available for sale.
It has been quite some time since my last blog post, and I don't like leaving my blog unattended for so long. However, this will probably be par for the course over the next few months (until January, at least) as I work through the CPA exam. For the uninitiated, the CPA exam is a 14-hour, four part exam that covers virtually every topic a certified public accountant would need to know. The study guide alone for the part I'm currently studying for is over 700 pages, to give you an idea of how much information I'll need to cram into my head.
However, the upside of my current absence is that this is the very last step to becoming a CPA, which will give me so much more career freedom than I've ever had before. Once that's finished, I'll be able to figure out a schedule and career path that works best for me to balance my art and my accounting work, which I'm very excited about.
Aside from that, learning to work my fingers to the bone on a daily basis makes me quite certain that when I'm done with the exam, I'm going to have to find something else enormous to work on. I'm thinking I'll write a book...
