Yep...that's me....so tired today. Actually, I can say I'm pretty much tired every day! UGH! I blame part of it on the weather....it's gray and there's dirty snow on the ground....and dirty slush on the sidewalks and driveways.....it's just gray and ick. I could suffer a bit from Seasonal Affective Disorder....I'm quite happy and chipper when the sun is shining.
But...I do blame part of it on hormones. Yes...I believe I'm in that lovely peri-stage we read so much about...and I'm not handling it well. I have been tired for what seems like FOREVER! I can't remember a night that I have slept thru..without catching the time on the bedside clock each and EVERY hour...seriously. And that makes me tired too I'm sure. I long for quality sleep time!!! But that's apparently not going to happen for a while. So I've decided to try and DO something about it! I'm in week two of an all natural vitamin/supplement regimen that promises change. Of course I'm supposed to give it longer than 2 weeks.....but I am impatient.....and tired! and gaining weight when I've NEVER had a weight issue...and did I mention I'm tired? and feeling cold and clammy and sweaty, yet I'm dry to the touch? and I'm tired. But I'm also hopeful that I will find some natural relief soon!
Haven't done much in the studio...but I did get all the triangles on a roll sewing cut apart...and they're sorted into medium lights, mediums, medium darks and darks and are ready for pressing/paper tearing! Have you used the triangles on a roll before? And if so, did you press BEFORE you tore the paper off...or did you tear the paper off and THEN press? It's been so long since I used these, and I think I maybe tore the paper off and THEN pressed...but then I read somewhere that that really stresses the bias on the half square triangles.....so...how do YOU do it?
I'd love to hear from you!
