Here's the first bit of progress on the family rules pattern. Doing that "BE" was incredibly tedious.
I probably won't get much more work done on it for a few days. Too much cleaning to do. Sometimes you're just too tired to squint at a pattern on the computer and count stitches over and over.
You know how you can be tired enough to fall asleep while reading or stitching but not fall asleep when lying in bed or watching TV? That was once the bane of my existence. My solution is to watch something in another language. It's much easier to drop off when it's just noise. That's a bona fide (do we write that as one word in US English? My browser is stuck on British spellings which sometimes confuses things) tip from a chronic insomniac, one who doesn't even WANT to sleep but recognizes she must.
